To quote Dylan, the times they are a changing in Newlyn.

Enjoy the latest art show at the gallery or grab a heart-warming cup of Cornish Origin coffee from the Newlyn Gallery cafe and, at the same time, get to soak up the best of Mounts Bay views...


proof, as if needed, that the sun rises in the East...


as Tom keeps an eye on things out to sea...


there's a few more undulate ray on the market this morning...


along with John Dory...


and this beast of a turbot, well over 7kg in weight - just heard on the grapevine that the fish auction seems all set to bring back weighing fish in pounds and stones as the country once again looks to the days of Empire having shrugged off the yoke of EU membership...


and there's yet more good news on the fish branding front, grey mullet are to be known as Cornish bass...


these beauties will be Polperro plaice...


Looe lemon sole...


and, to honour that the port record has been broken so many times thanks to these fish, that they will now be known as Scilly sole...


and it does not stop there with these shellfish now being re-branded as Cornish Queen scallops...


slim pickings for the handful of handliners who toughed out very chilly conditions yesterday...

today, the resident seal enjoyed fresh haddock for breakfast..


time to take the bait...


let's hope the crabs don't make a beeline for this boat when she's at sea...


the Ali Cat heads back to her berth...


keeping an eye on things...


visiting Under10m stern trawler Simon Paul and...


the Poole registered Harvey Grace are currently both landing top quality inshore fish to the market.
