local family business
Local fishermen using pots and creels land Scottish brown crab and lobster directly from their vessels into our processing facility.
We also take shellfish landings from a number of vessels based in other Scottish ports easily accessible to Peterhead.
The Crab Company Scotland Ltd is based on the quayside at Peterhead. Brown crab and lobster are particularly prevalent in the coastal area around North East Scotland.
We provide customers throughout the world with live shellfish specialising in Brown Crab (cancer pagurus) and Scottish Lobster (homarus gammarus) both of which are fished extensively around the coast of the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom is one of the world’s leading seafood-producing nations with a huge fishing fleet working around its coastline.
Major processing centres include the fishing ports of Brixham, Grimsby, Fraserburgh, Lerwick and of course Peterhead, the busiest fish landing port in Europe and home to the headquarters of The Crab Company Scotland Ltd.
