Supermoon sardines.


Dozens of insulated tubs lined up under this year's 'Buck' moon...



all set on the deck of the Golden Harvest to land their first catch of Cornish sardines...



astern of them, the Lyonessese...



begins landing her maximum catch...



already landed, Vesta crew Woody lends a hand to land the first brail of fish...



every tub is topped with ice and filled with seawater to keep the catch at an optimum temperature...



as skipper Dan hooks up the next brail...



as Matt reaches for the clip to release the fish...
