Shetland’s unique location means that most Shetland fishing boats make short trips to sea, typically 1 to 5 days with a mix of seine and trawl vessels. This makes for fish of exceptional quality and freshness. We also access quantities of elite quality hand line caught fish including Cod, Pollock and Mackerel.
