About Us

Seafood Sourcing was formed at the beginning of 2016 to access a niche market area, providing the finest quality fish from the boat and delivered to the shelf in the fastest possible time.


Seafood Sourcing buys from all the main Scottish ports; Shetland, Lochinver, Mallaig, Fraserburgh, Kinlochbervie and predominantly from the main and largest European fishing port – Peterhead.


The catch processing facility is in Fraserburgh, where a small amount of the daily purchases are hand filleted by a small, highly skilled team.


Once ready, the fish is transported in modern refrigerated lorries and delivered to Boulogne Sur Mer within 12 hours, ensuring that all connections to surrounding areas are met.


Within 24 hours of arriving at quayside, the fish has been processed and delivered to Europe for sale.

Our Mission Statement

Seafood Sourcing hand selects, purchases and processes the finest quality locally caught sea fish, within 12 hours of the trawler arrival within the Scottish port.
