Newlyn is loaded with fish on Monday morning.



The first fridge is full of fish as far as you can see this morning...


with a big landings of hake from the Silver Dawn...


and the Stelissa...


their trips included a few dozen boxes of spurdogs which they are licensed to land under an agreement set up in close collaboration with the CFPO, Cefas and the MMO together with the Shark Trust...


after a busy bout of bidding Falfish's buyer Ed manages to find time to share a moment with young Craig Tonkin...


there are still hundreds of boxes to be sold including big landings of megrim soles...


and monk tails from the two beam trawlers tat landed over the weekend...


the Sapphire II...


and the St Georges...


whose trip included these immaculate red mullet...


and that most un-fish like fish, the Dover sole...


both trips filled number two grader chill room...


while the handline fridge was stacked out with mackerel...


and the odd bass, these two courtesy of handline man Barry on the Boy Brax...


two inshore trawlers, the New Venture...


and the Harvest Reaper both fished over the weekend despite the big, jumping spring tide in the making which can make towing a trawl in areas requiring accurate navigation in avoiding wrecks and other hitches on the bottom significantly more difficult when you only have 10m of boat and a few hundred horsepower  at your command...


not an issue for the likes of the Sapphire II which, like many of the port's trawlers lands small gurnards for pot bait...


more recently the boats have taken to landing monk heads for the same reason, what is less clear is why the guys on board are not removing the monkfish cheeks which many restaurants would pay good money for...


the porters have their work cut out tis morning getting fish back to be proessed as soon as possible...


with that many netters in the port you know that it is now spring tide time...


the Sapphire II's first job after landing is to take on board fuel...


visiting Dutch beam trawler, Jochem...


like many in their fleet is equipped with twin net drums for trawling at certain times of the year.
