New annual high for Grimsby Fish Market supply

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 14 Mar 2017

A new supply high for 2017 was recorded by Grimsby Fish Market yesterday, (Monday, March 13) as the crucial Icelandic trade link beds down post strike.

With the fleets back fishing, and the logistics chain back to its best, operator Grimsby Fish Dock Enterprises saw 3,062 boxes auctioned, 

A total weight of 153,100 kg passed through, with two thirds (67 per cent) of the display from Iceland (2,054 boxes). Making up the balance, 577 boxes came overland, with 431 from other sources. 

It eclipsed last Monday’s 2,217 boxes with the team on Wharnclife Road hoping it continues to build towards Easter.

Cod, haddock and plaice was plentiful, with prices reflecting volumes. 

As extensively reported vessels were tied up in mid-December, only returning to the North Atlantic fishing grounds in the last week of February following a resolution to the dispute over pay and conditions.

Today saw a further 1,271 boxes auctioned, with 95 per cent from Iceland.
