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. 

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.


Newlyn is the largest fishing port in Cornwall and is perfectly located for some of the best fishing grounds in UK waters. The port has a considerable fleet of beamers, large netters, trawlers and small boats to catch the stocks when the weather permits.

In addition to the considerable mixed fishery enjoyed by boats further up the English Channel,  Newlyn vessels catch commercial quantities of haddock, hake, John Dory and megrim.
