Our story

We pride ourselves on being the home of fish experts, who have served the finest seafood since 1984.

Marc Shipton is our Business Director and leads the team here at Kingfisher Brixham. The business was first established in 1984 by Nick Summersby, who began filleting fish in a bath tub! From these humble beginnings, and after years of hard work and dedication, we have grown, and our team have built a successful, and modern business, based on the foundations of our passion for the fishing industry.

Our staff have joined us from generations in fishing, with many remaining Brixham born and bred, so they almost have fish in their blood! They hold a wealth of knowledge and experience, alongside a passion for the fishing industry. Built on strong traditions, Kingfisher Brixham is a work family, who have a loyality and commitment to what we do here.

Behind the scenes you will find our knowledgeable buyers and experienced sales team, to our skillful fishmongers and efficient delivery drivers. Our team are masters of the trade; with a wealth of knowledge supporting them. We don’t just take fish orders, we go above and beyond for our customers, offering advice on menu planning, fish and seafood availability and seasonality, buyer reccomendations, daily specials and offering suggestions on the best way to prepare your fish for you.

Located in the heart of South West England, with the world famous Brixham fish market right on our doorstep, we are so lucky to be able to take advatange of our prime coastal position near the beautiful fishing port of Brixham. In turn, we have the advantage of supplying some of the UK’s freshest, finest seafood available, because Kingfisher Brixham knows that ‘your fish, is our business’!

Our experienced buyers wake at sunrise to bid on the freshest daily landings, ensuring they secure the best fish available. Over 40 species are landed into Brixham fish market, but if any of our fish and seafood are unavailable here, we source from other UK ports such as Plymouth and Newlyn, as well as overseas where required, to cover all customer requirements.
