The Portland Scallop Company
Retail Suppliers of Quality Shellfish, Smoked and Wet Fish
The Portland Scallop Co. was started in 1998, by ex-commercial diver, Jamie Walker and Debbie Hughes, diving for scallops off the Lulworth Banks and West Bay in Dorset.
These were sold at London’s Borough Market. However, due to demand for fresh fish, they soon began supplying bass, sole, plaice and mackerel caught off the Dorset coast.
Nowadays, several boats supply the Portland Scallop Co., plus its own, the Corinne Lucy, which catches bass by rod and line off Portland Bill.
The finest & freshest seafood from the South West brought to markets every weekend
Each weekend a wide range of fish including, when available, turbot, monkfish, Dover and lemon sole, bass, plaice, mackerel and much more are brought to London.
Shellfish include; dived scallops, Portland crab, rock oysters, rope-grown mussels and Poole Harbour palourdes (clams), lobster and prawns.
Smoked fish is traditionally cured using oak chippings and include mackerel, salmon and kippers.
These markets and venues are where you can find us.
