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.


Plymouth - Sutton Harbour

Sutton Harbour in Plymouth is a privately owned harbour, owned  by Sutton Harbour Holdings. A major redevelopment of the harbour in the early 1990's included the installation of a lock and new fish market. The retained depth in the harbour makes it a very safe haven for fishing vessels.

Plymouth Trawler Agents owns and operates the electronic fish auction.

Access to the harbour for larger vessels is governed by the height of the tide outside the lock.

All vessels wishing to enter the harbour must call Sutton Lock on VHF Channel 12.

Tel: 01752 204732

Ice and fuel is available from the harbour company.

Vessels wishing to land their fish through the auction must contact Plymouth Trawler Agents.
