The Need for Additional Storage in the Frozen Fish Industry

April 9, 2020 3:17 pm

With 70% of the UK fishing catch exported to Europe and Asia, it doesn’t take too long to realise that in this current situation demand from the export markets has dried up. In addition to this, the domestic restaurant trade has also dropped in demand and who knows when both will recover.

Most of what British consumers eat is imported. However, due to the situation, expensive seafood which would normally be exported (such as Dover sole and lobster) will end up in fishmongers at reduced prices. Likewise, the British public may start changing their fish eating habits too. We can expect consumers to stray from traditional fish like cod or haddock, and trying whelks, megrim sole or monkfish.

Severely reduced exports and a potential increase in demand for other types of fish may present some storage issues in the UK. As a result, we can expect an increased demand for additional frozen storage space as existing cold storage reaches capacity.
