Pelagic processing expands – 1989

Pelagic fish processing plant, Shetland Catch, opened with investment from Shetland Islands Council, Shetland Fishermen’s Organisation and Lerwick Harbour Trust (now Lerwick Port Authority).

Based in Lerwick, the strategic position of the operation at the heart of the North Atlantic fishing grounds, has resulted in strong landings from Shetland’s own – and the wider – pelagic fleet.

Offal from the plant continues to be processed at Shetland Fish Products in Bressay.
