Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

A wet day in Newlyn!



Big spring tides keep the netting fleet in port for the best part of a week - here the Ygraine is being readied for her next trip...


while the port's largest privately owned beam trawler, the immmaculate Sapphire II is also preparing for her next trip after landing with her starboard-side trawl being overhauled...


across the harbour the Stevenson fleet are either undergoing major overhauls like the St Georges...




and the Cornishman...


working on the trawls after landing...


or laid-up like the Lisa Jacqueline and the William Samson Stevenson...


Intuition and Nimrod, two of the Rowse crab fleet take a day off from hauling pots...


while the crew of the sardine netter Mayflower look like they have a long day mending in the rain still ahead of them.
