Fisheries & Seafood

The largest value catch in England

The port of Brixham is at the centre of the UK fishing industry and offers exciting opportunities for fishing and processing businesses. Investment in Brixham Fish Market and a combination of traditional values and modern methods gives Brixham a strong marine economy and a distinct advantage over other fishing ports across the UK.

The most important fisheries centre in Britain

Brixham’s fleet is key to the continued success of the fish and seafood sector in the region. As the largest fishing port in England this continued growth supports a strong processing sector.

Get closer to England’s largest catch

Brixham is one of the most important ports for landing high quality fish and shellfish in England, but currently the majority of processing is done elsewhere in the UK. This presents an opportunity for processors who want immediate access to England’s largest catch and reinforce the provenance of their product.

Strong brand recognition

As a brand, Brixham has a high public awareness factor and is immediately recognised as a producer of top quality fish, giving businesses a distinct advantage when it comes to promotion.

A 21st Century market

Brixham is a modern market with a robust logistics infrastructure provided by companies with expert knowledge in chilled and refrigerated transport. Coupled with recent investment in real time market place electronic technology, the infrastructure to develop and expand a successful processing business is already in place.
