Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 3 April 2019

Mid-week in Newlyn.


Sun's up but only just visible...


from behind the Mount...


as heavy showers crawl eastwards across the bay...


as the Orion, first of this season's Scottish prawn trawlers arrives in Newlyn...


though she will only land her excess whitefish on Newlyn's shiny new market...


with a poor forecast and big tide most of the fleet are tied up...


including the Brixham beam trawler Angel Emiel BM55...


two new crabber recruits laying ahead of their big sister, Intuition...


and sisters Harriet Eve and the Nirmod...
 


good to see the Ygraine in action again... 


Ocean and Falfish kind of go head-to-head...


good to see a visiting boat up on the slip, all grist to the harbour's mill...


what a difference some serious TLC has made to the Fishermen's rest on the Old Quay...


these huge pots are not used used to catch crab or lobster...


but the 'bait' inside them might just be a clue...


heading in after an uncomfortable ride home from the grounds...


40 and 50 miles to the south of Newlyn...


the netter Govenek of Ladram makes it to the fish market to land for tomorrow's auction...


while the rest of the netting fleet are safely in berth.
