Fine #FishyFriday in Newlyn.



It's a fine start to #FishyFriday...



with Tristan's MSC certified hake landed from the Silver Dawn looking good on the market this morning...


along with a tidy collection of spurdogs landed under the auspices of a project run in conjunction with the Shark Trust and the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide...


the inshore trawler Millenia has a reputation for putting good shots of ray ashore and this morning was no exception...


pristine pollack always look good on ice...


as do these plaice...


top quality squid...


and a dinner-plate sized turbot will no doubt be gracing the plates of some lucky diners this evening...


soles like these Dovers...


and megrim are the mainstay of quality fish landed in Newlyn by both beam trawlers and trawlers alike...

in the process the beam trawl fleet land plenty of these small gurnard which these days help keep the local crabbing fleet well supplied with bait...


the larger sized fish are just as sought after as other prime fish like John Dory...


name that tail...




the beam trawler Resurgam has been put up on the hard to allow access below the waterline at low water...

while the rest of the Stevenson fleet enjoy the warmth of the rising sun this morning...


looking west, the light is much cooler looking towards that part of the town known as Trewarveneth in Cornish (farm/Manor) - the first street on the right as you ascend the short rise from the Canners Slip is Trewarveneth Street

and one of Stevenson's old wooden trawlers was so named and has a wall plaque at the foot of the street...


most of the netting fleet are in port as the spring tides make their presence felt...


the auction over fish are transferred to the waiting transport...


there's a Dutchman on the quay from the Luyt Group who have recently completed to major refits on the netters Silver Dawn and Stelissa...


evidence of more major refit work can be found further down thew quay as Rowse's engineers continue their work stripping the ex-trawler Aztec BA244 and preparing her for a new career potting...


the largest of the Rowse fleet, the Emma Louise prepared to deploy more pots at sea...


Ocean Fish's mini-scalloper le Men Dhu has changed over to fishing with 3m beams...


which necessitates plenty of spare everything being kept to hand...


having just returned from her refit in Holland, the netter Stelissa now needs to board all her fishing gear in order to undergo the mandatory stability or 'roll-test' as it is known - the boat is made to roll heavily and the length of time each roll takes to right is averaged and from that the surveyor makes a judgment as to the boat's stability - this is necessary as she has just had major work carried out on her transom stern and net pound which is now completely watertight...


"fire in the sky"...


more of a subtle rose-pink than deep purple...


the harbour is never short of colour studies.
