Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 28 September 2020

Sardines galore in Newlyn.

It's all smiles from the crew as they land 150 boxes of hard won hake from the Govenek of Ladram after they endured 24 hours of up to storm Force 10 wind and heavy seas at the start of their five day trip...


astern of them sardines galore...


are brailed ashore from the Asthore...


plenty of slush ice to keep the fish in tip-top condition...


and it's all smiles from the latest crew member still high on the excitement of only his second trip with another big haul of 19 tons under his belt...


those smiles can be seen down on the deck as the last of the fish come ashore...



swung over the tubs...

before being released...


and the brail sent back for another lift...



this short video shows the whole process in action...


another landing of brown crab in progress...


before the Asthore prepares to leave her berth ready for tonight's foray into the bay in the hunt for more sardines.
