Britain's finest shellfish

Trust us for high quality

We have comprehensive harbourside holding facilities, enabling the shellfish to be transferred directly from the vessels to the live holding tanks (vivier). We're capable of holding quantities of up to 6 tonnes.


The water is continually aerated and chilled, improving the quality of the shellfish by decreasing the stress that they are under. The shellfish can then be stored for a considerable amount of time before they are sold, mostly for export. We have our own refrigerated delivery vehicles so freshness is guaranteed.

Bridlington is now Britain's largest shell fishing port with a multi-million pound export market, supplying crabs and lobsters to markets, restaurants and hotels in France, Spain and Italy.


The number of boats operating out of the port has more than doubled in the past few years. So if you're looking for the finest East Coast Crab and Lobster give Bridlington Shellfish a call today.
