Brixham Fish Market
The £20m Brixham Fish Market was opened by HRH Princess Royal in March 2011 to accommodate the needs of the 21st Century fishing industry Brixham with a new purpose built fish market, designed to compliment the historic port and provide an extended quayside, new processing space, a new fish restaurant and fishmongers.
The historic port of Brixham is benefiting from this major regeneration project which was conceived to enhance the local economy, which remains heavily based on the fishing industry, by retaining local employment and generating new jobs.
Unlike many other UK ports the Brixham fishery is largely sustainable and therefore has thrived in recent years resulting in the highest value catch in England and a world class reputation for quality. Brixham fish finds its way to local outlets, top London restaurants and the plates of consumers across Europe. The fishing industry is complemented by a number of supporting industries. The town's community has a strong tourism sector, thriving art community and a fascinating maritime heritage.
Brixham Fish Market, project managed and delivered by the TDA on behalf of Torbay Harbour Authority, Torbay Council and the town’s community regeneration partnership Brixham 21, is part of the vision for the renaissance of Brixham, to develop its strengths and a long term sustainable future for this bustling port.
