Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 2 February 2021

Never a dull moment in Newlyn.

Just one of those things, after spending 48 hours at sea the port's new super-beam trawler Enterprise on her maiden voyage was forced to return to port for hydraulic repairs...

which gave the shore staff, under the watchful eye of ex-skipper Graham, a chance to put the landing gear...


through its paces...



and try out the new company fish boxes for use at sea...


during which time her catch was put ashore for auction...


meanwhile the ring-netter Asthore, also with a hydraulic problem had the mammoth task of getting into port with the bulk of her 20 ton catch still in the net...


and alongside the boat before she was able to land the fish ashore, all in a day's work and exemplifying the truly unpredictable nature of fishing.
