Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 2 September 2019

Monday morning in Newlyn.


The Newlyn fishing fleet, pride of Cornwall...


buying on the market was competitive this morning with just the one full trip...


from the netter, Stelissa...


and a small number of landings from inshore boats that ventured out over the big spring tide over the weekend...


haddock...


and megrims came from a small trip from the James RH...


while mackerel supplies were limited mainly to fish from Falmouth way...


a few of the local punts enjoyed pickings of bass...


a dinner plate sized turbot...


and some of his much bigger brothers...


heavy cloud cover always provides Mounts Bay with dramatic sky hues early in the morning...


the Cornishman sitting light in the water with all her fishing gear removed during her major refit...


Saint Piran, IFCA's patrol boat at rest...


there's just a small gap in the cloud over the horizon to indicate the sun is rising...


just enough to light the bay...


visiting scalloper Cam Bounteous...


and the King Explorer 


from Kirkudbright...


at last the windows have appeared in the good ship Galilee...


Mermaid Pleasure trips are just one of a number of local boats that take passengers out to see the diverse sea-life around the coast...


most of the Stevenson fleet at rest between trips...


no chance of running out of harbour boxes from now on it seems...


heavy steel work keeps the beam trawl fleet at sea...


the Scillys supply ship Mali Rose which was to replace the existing vessel, Gry Maritha is now to be sold one - its a long story.
