As the Scottish fishing industry continues to battle to get its produce to EU markets, we highlight who will deliver fresh seafood to your door.
There’s no denying Scotland’s fishing and shellfish industries are facing challenges like never before as a result of the Brexit border delays which have been affecting routes to market since before the deal was officially signed off at the tail end of 2020.
And with so many firms struggling to sell their produce in the EU, it is down to the Scottish public to back the industry as much as they can by considering to purchase their seafood from local suppliers.
Be that directly from fish merchants, online independent stores, your local fish van or even via a Scottish seafood subscription box, there are numerous ways people can get behind the industry and ensure the quality produce the fisherman have spent weeks catching doesn’t go to waste.
So what better way to help them than by filling your belly, and your family’s bellies, with high-quality produce that has been landed at harbours and on your plate within days.
Below we have outlined some of the seafood firms across the region sending delicious produce across the UK and also delivering locally.
Suppliers of the famous Arbroath smokies, M&M Spink deliver fresh Scottish seafood to Arbroath, Montrose, Dundee and Perth, to name only a few, and also deliver across the UK.
Offering up everything from crab to crayfish tails, to cod, peppered mackerel, kippers, herring Arbroath smokies and more, customers can get a real flavour of the sea delivered straight to their door.
