Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 2 December 2019

Monday morning in Newlyn.


Unusually this turbot has no pigment on the topside...



the inshore boats made the most of a relativey quiet weekend weather-wise so boats like the Imogen III were able to get in some good hauls like these ray...


the odd bass...


Couch's bream...


and the odd red mullet


while Still Waters picked up more ray...


tell-tale tail but from which fish?..


good enough to eat...


this time of year is not megrim sole season...


though the odd John Dory still seems to find its way over young Roger Nowell's footrope and into his cod end...


the odd monk or two...


a good day's fishing for Still Waters, the only Newlyn boat with a regular female member of the crew!...


just a few with the beam trawlers that landed...


plenty of these guys in t Ives Bay - despite being chased by bluefin tuna and minke whales...


nice work Sheila T...


just some of the macs landed...


good to see young Edwin wide awake...


plenty of frozen bait ready for the pots on the good ship Nazarene...


well before sunrise it's the ever elusive Cod at speed heading for another day handlining for bass...


Girl Pamela leaves the fishmarket...


Trinity House's Patricia at anchor...


with not a breath of wind to disturb the waters in Mounts Bay...


always good to see the Ivan Ellen tucked up in her berth...


Chris Morley making ready...


 to spend another day on the pollack and bass...



as a little more light breaks into the sky...


with the new lifeboat house...


and gigs enjoying the light, even though the temp is around 0˚...


seems we have a new Xmas tree in Keel Alley this year courtesy of Newlyn Harbour Lights - made entirely from discarded trawl net and other plastic fishing gear - hats off to all those helping Newlyn to maintain its green credentials!
