Fabulous #FishyFriday in Newlyn.

Which fish is this?..

Newlyn is always good for ray on a #FishyFriday......

while some go for Dory...

the new kid on the block opted for quality brill...

others say you can't eat a bit of bass...

monk tails don't come bigger than this...

those famous red harbour boxes...

a titanic company...

the thoughtful face of a fish buyer...

time to bid...

good to see the Karen of Ladram at a better angle this morning...

most of the fleet are in port for a poor forecast and big tides...


while the quota for haddock is still very small...



there's plenty of megrim to go round... 

there's more than a day's work to be done aboard the giant scalloper Albion...


and so, it seems, is the case with the Kilkeel based unity...

as the crew begin the lengthy process of pulling off all the bridles...

which stretch almost the length of the Mary Williams pier...

those 34 dredges need to catch a lot of scallops every day...

a trio of orange sardine boats...

the Lizard lifeboat picked up a trimaran in trouble off the Lizard and then handed her over to the Penlee boat to escort her back to Newlyn...

and a safe berth outside one of the beamers for the night...

Bon Accord, Rowse's latest addition to the crabber fleet heads for a berth against the quay to dry out...

Asteria, once a crabber, now a netter...

daylight dawns on the Karen...

the Silver Dawn is back from her major refit in Den Helder...


sporting her rebuilt and raised net shelter aft which is now 100% watertight...

bicycles, de-rigeur transport for the live-aboard netter crews...

which are all currently tied up over one of the yer's biggest tides...

tons of fish aboard the lorry about to leave for the processor...

sun-up over the bay...

bathe the Penlee lifeboat house in morning light...

along with the Ocean Pride up on the slip...

seems to be taking forever to repair the fire damage to the Fishermen's Arms...

the Unity, bow on.
