The business was started in 1982 at the market before moving to the present retail shop and business headquarters on Harbour Road. A ‘fishy’ wall mural by artist Tom Leaper, marks the spot. Trelawney Fish exports regularly to Switzerland, France, Spain and Belgium, all by road; on top of their UK market and local retailing. With the growth of tourism in recent years has come the expansion of the catering industry, with prime Newlyn fish an important feature.
The fish caught each day is rushed to modern, purpose built premises, adjacent to the port. Once there, it is prepared to the specific requirements of each customer, packed and dispatched in chilled insulated boxes; all in the same day.
