It's #FishyFriday and the end to an historic week in Newlyn.


This week heralded in a new chapter in the story of W. Stevenson & Sons Ltd who for many years dominated almost every aspect of the port, home to the largest fleet of privately owned fishing vessels in Europe - at one time numbering over 30 vessels...


on Monday news came that Ocean Fish based in Roche, Cornwall had taken a controlling interest in the company and their fleet of 12 beam trawlers...


however, despite the huge significance of the deal, it has been business as usual in the harbour and on the fish market...


with Stevenson's boats like the Trevessa IV landing their usual mix of prime fish like monk tails...


brill...


and turbot...


and continuing to act as agents and auctioneers for many other boats landing line caught fish...


 like mackerel...


and herring...


the beam trawler Sapphire II's trip included a single box of cuttlefish...


and ski[per Paul Corin donated this box of scallops in support of the Newlyn Lights fund...


a combination of wind and big tides see many of the fleet in tier...


in the darkness that pervades the port...


also in darkness, the Sapphire II takes on fuel...


while the footpath that borders the new Penlee Lifeboat house lights the way...


round to the old inshore lifeboat house where ex-trawler skipper Edward Harvey sets nets.
