Fish Market

Scalloway Fish Market was completed in 2020, and offers the highest standards of health & safety and environmental hygiene throughout all processes from landing to dispatch.  The market offers easy landing at the quayside and quick access to over 1,300mof chilled market floor space.  

The building has a high-speed fibre connection to Shetland Seafood Auctions providing ready access to the online marketplace for buyers and sellers.

Users of this market facility must undergo our induction process to ensure that we maintain highest hygiene standards and that all fish sold through Shetland Markets is of the very highest quality. 

The quayside can accept a wide range of fishing vessels up to 4.8m draft.  Any vessels over 4.8m draft should seek tidal advice from Scalloway Harbour Office before using the market or ice plant. 

Scalloway Habour offers all its services for the fishing industry within a relatively small area to aid a quick turn around for vessel operations.  Fuel, ice and boxes are available through LHD Limited

Net mending facilities are also available.
