Simpson Fish are specialists in sourcing the best possible quality whole fish from the Shetland Islands. The fishing industry in Shetland is currently in the middle of an exciting period of growth.

The local fleet is expanding and modernizing in order to take advantage of the abundant fish stocks which gather around Shetland’s vast coastline.

The Shetland Islands are literally in the middle of the most prolific fishing grounds in Europe. Indeed, Shetland is the second largest whitefish landing port in the UK. We are dedicated to sourcing for our customers the finest, freshest whitefish available for the best possible value.

Poisson de ligne

Simpson Fish has built a number of partnerships with local inshore fisherman to bring you some of the very best Shetland fish possible.

Our ‘Poisson de Ligne’ brand is carefully selected from passionate fishermen who handle the fish with great care. The catch is sourced in areas around the coastline of Shetland and following gutting, it is iced down immediately. The fish is then brought shore for shipping – all in a matter of a few hours. This fish is among the freshest possible.

‘Poisson de Ligne’ is mainly derived from Cod but occasionally Pollock is available too. The name is chosen because the fish is sent to discerning customers in the Brittany region of France. Each fish is individually tagged and is fully traceable.
