Cornish Sardine season to start soon!




Beam trawler AA and the netter Ygraine with 50 boxes of hake along with plenty of quality monk and flats from the beam trawler St Georges landed to the market this morning...


while the sight of two ring netters brought up to dry out on the hard for work under the waterline anti-fouling are a sure sign that this year's Cornish sardine season is about to kick off...


no such luck for the stern trawler Spirited Lady as her replacement Volvo Penta main engine arrives on the quayside...



a few hours later and the tide has hardly dropped, Jason is already hard at work scrubbing off the weed below the waterline!
