Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 30 October 2019

Mid-week market in gale-torn Newlyn.


Blown in by gales, the James RH and the Resurgam landed their fish directly to the fish market quay...


their trips included a few John Dory...


big blondes...


fresh bait for the crab fleet...


also landing were Dovers from the St Georges...


and the Algrie with plaice..


lemons...


and megrim...


squid...


red mullet...



a handful of octopus...

and turbot, all auctioned...


by Ryan and recorded traditional pen and paper...


together with a few dozen scallops...


and well spotted plaice...


the heavy beam trawls are spread across the deck after an uncomfortable ride back to port in the south easterly gale...


the home-made fishwasher still pumped with seawater...


another passer-by held up by the inclement weather...


along with the Crystal Sea II...


and some of the Rowse crab fleet...


Ocean Fish and Stevensons beam trawlers are now all under the same roof...


a packed port...


some new signage has given the new fish market building a finishing touch...


as a Quayside artic is guided into a parking spot.
