Fish Market

The Scalloway Fish Market was completed in 2020, this state of the art facility has been built to provide the very highest standards of health & safety and environmental hygiene throughout all processes from landing to dispatch.
The market offers floor space of around 1,950 metres and the energy-efficient building includes a fibre connection for direct access to the online electronic seafood auction, providing ready access to the marketplace for buyers and sellers.

All sales are conducted through Shetland Seafood Auctions electronic auction system

Users of this market facility are required to undergo our induction process before they can use it, this helps us to ensure that the highest hygiene standards are maintained at all times.
This in turn ensures that fish sold through Shetland Markets is of the very highest quality

The market can accept all but the very deepest of trawlers, vessels over 4.8m draft should seek tidal advice from Scalloway Harbour Office before using the market or Ice Plant.


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

Net mending facilities are also available.
