It wasn't all black and white on Tuesday morning's market in Newlyn.

 

BM7 Monty of Ladram (formerly Lady Maureen) uses her bow thruster to take up a berth alongside the fish market in Newlyn to land...


the market was laden with flats like these Dover Sole...


and John dory from the beam trawler Cornishman...


along with the first of this season's MSC Certified Cornish Sardines...


Cap'n Cod, the bass man was busy the previous evening with this nice little haul of summer fish...


along with a shot of line caught mackerel...


he was not alone...



though for this first-time mackerel tripper pickings were not quite so plentiful, early days yet Jason...


it won't be long before skipper Carroll takes command of his new crabber, Winter of Ladram, currently undergoing finishing touches up at Parkol Marine in Whitby...


heading back to berth under a heavenly morning sky...

the biggest landing by volume was several hundred boxes of haddock from the seiner Acciona...


along a handful of lemons from the port's latest addition to the inshore fleet, Guardian, Tom's replacement for the Harvest Reaper...


whole monk added to the Acciona's trip...

as did a good shot of hake...


bettered by the netter Ygraine's good looking hake landing...


name the fish...


the right kind, just not enough for some...


young George just cannot resist those red mullet on the market...


another Ladram boat top enjoy the delights of Newlyn, the inshore trawler


it's a laugh-a-minute aboard the Karen of Ladram...


built over 100 years ago in 1905, the Bristol Channel pilot cutter, Letty


built not quite so long ago, the Cornishman...



and the seiner, Acciona.
