Monday morning in Newlyn


Thanks to the storm force winds over the weekend these netter and the rest of the fleet are tucked up in port this morning...


after the Stelissa and her partner ship Silver Dawn put ashore two big trips of mainly hake...


while the St Georges put ashore a huge 300+ box trip of mainly megrim and monk from the deeper waters south west of Newlyn along with the Sapphire II...


big turbot...


big monk heads for crab bait...


and plenty of haddock...


while a few handliners managed to brave the strong winds on the shore grounds to land a few boxes of squid...


the netters also landed the odd red bream...


and all but used up their months quota of spurdogs...


to go with their MSC Certified Cornish hake...


well spotted!..


Newlyn boats are constantly bringing debris they have trawled up form the depths, this time the rail of a small boat wrapped in French trawl net...


the crabber Nimrod is ready to land...


to the waiting lorry from Grimsby...


as skipper Ben checks over the details with the driver - then has to decide whether to head back out to sea again - or not...


seasonal gift-wrapped hake from the Govenek of Ladram......


fancy a scallop or two?..


stars on the market this morning...


with both auctioneers in full swing...



it's not called a shout auction for nothing!
