Brixham Fish Market

With a strong fishing tradition dating back to the 14th century, Brixham is credited with being one of the birthplaces of trawling. In the 19th century it was recorded that Brixham had 270 sail operated decked trawlers employing 1600 seamen making it “the largest fishery in England”. Our Fleet

Our current fleet consists of a mix of local day boats and larger beam trawlers who remain at sea for 5 to 7 days at a time. They fish mainly in the English Channel but also operate in waters as far afield as the Bristol Channel and the Irish Sea. There are also a number of scallop boats that operate in local waters all year round.

Brixham is now England’s largest fish market by value of fish sold. In 2017 this was in excess of £40,000,000.
