Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 17 September 2021

Golden hues herald in #FishyFriday in Newlyn.


Not to be left out, the marine version of crop circles, seen off Pendeen...


and Botallack...


as the sun goes down in spectacular style at Sennen...


you just know tomorrow will be lacking in rays of sunshine with an evening sky like this...


#FishyFriday's morning market brings its own brilliance...


including a rare golden haddock...


the thoughtful ling...


and superb quality Ygraine hake...


the only rays today...


 are those on the market...


though there are more golden hues up for auction...


monk cheeks...


and Dover sole from the trawl fleet...


while the inshore boats added to the golden theme this morning with a box...


of Silvery Sea Bream also known as Bogue or Boops Boops...


with the sardine season in full swing...


name these fish...


inshore lemons courtesy of the inshore fleet...


and megrims from the one beam trawler to land...


along with her monk tails...


among the big whitefish landings form the netters were these big blackjacks...


and the odd thornback...


looking down on the working deck of the Algrie, the last of the old style beam trawlers where the deck pounds are assembled once the boat is at sea fishing...


looks like this marble boulder will be going home to grace someone's garden...


low water sees one of the local ravens guarding his breakfast carcass from some of this years young black-back gulls..


the Steph of Ladram is nearing the end of her refit...


a more comfortable berth than being anchored out in the bay today for the coastal trader sailing ship Bessie


spiders not from Mars...


going through the trawl looking for damage on the inshore trawler new Venture...


good time to buy shares in Jotun with all the current refits in the port...


Scotty unloading another string of new pots...


whose construction gets some close scrutiny from skipper Nudd Jnr...


merchants vans line up outside the market to pick up the morning's successful auction bids.
