Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 8 July 2019

Monday morning Newlyn fish auction


Come rain or shine, there's always no end of jobs to be done on the fleet...



most of the smaller vessels have 'legs' - stout wooden beams that are attached either side of the hull so that it won't fall over when the boat dries out - the two ropes are used to position the leg before it is bolted through the gunwale...



Monday morning's auction kicks off...



with a landing of hake from the netter Charisma...


and a dozen or so boxes of turbot...


while several of the inshore trawler fleet put in good trips of fish with John Dory...


and rays making up the bigger percentages of the hauls...


the odd brill...


and monk...


name the fish with these tails...


ling...



and a handful of Greater Weavers...


whisked away by the porters...


the beam trawlers landed trips of their usual summer mix, megrim monk and Dovers...


while the line boats pulled in pollack...


some with tags...


mackerel...


and the odd bass...


the Lisa's broken trip produced a few lemon sole...


new warps for a beam trawler stretch the entire length of the North pier and some...


sacrificial anodes reduce the damaging effects of electrolysis to engines, gearboxes and metalwork in general......


even the rudder is not safe...


back a little more...


the crabbing fleet now has a bait store for its frozen bait - which should save a lorry being kept down the quay...


spare gear for the Crystal Sea...


another idyllic start to the day...


the stern of the Ocean Pride takes shape...


it seems gulls have not sense of taste...


all in a name, a clue as to the owner...



the new lifeboat centre...


all is not quite as it seems...



 man on a mission...



for a few dollars more...


how a simple idea can save your life if you happen to go overboard when working single-handed and there is no-one to pull you aboard...



she catches haddock...


she catches scallops.
