Ports

The rich fishing grounds around the southern part of the UK are served by a fascinating variety of ports and harbours.  In the south west, Brixham and Plymouth in Devon and Newlyn in Cornwall are the main fishing ports with their own auction markets. The smaller port of Looe in Cornwall also has an auction market for local fishermen.

Travelling north from Newlyn, the next auction market to be found on the west coast of the UK is Fleetwood in Lancashire.  Travelling east from Brixham, your next most likely port of call will be Shoreham-by-Sea where Brighton and Newhaven Fish Sales Ltd will accept your fish by prior arrangement.

 

Mevagissey has a thriving array of boats from medium size trawlers down to small inshore netters and handliners. It is the second most important port in Cornwall for fish landings. Sheltered by Dodman Point from the prevailing west to south west winds, its fleet often puts to see when many larger vessels elsewhere are tied up.

The port is a popular tourist destination and an absolute b***** nightmare for our drivers as they thread their way through the narrow streets with just three inches to spare either side of their 7.5 tonne lorries.
