Welcome to the new Looe Fish Auction website
Looe is the location for Cornwall’s first online fish market, specialising in the best day-caught fish from all types of fishing methods, including trawling, netting and line catching. Fish from Looe’s market has a unique reputation for excellent quality.
Visit the “Today’s Supply” page for a live summary of species and quantities landed and available for purchase in the next Auction.
The newly upgraded online buying capability and the bidding download on the website allows bidding from any location with an internet connection, and ensures that the fishermen’s catches on the market reach the widest number of interested buyers.
The website has a number of easy to follow links on how to open an account, how to download the bidding software etc. together with numerous other features which we hope you will enjoy using.
The development and investment in the upgrade is the result of a long standing collaboration between Looe Harbour Commissioners, and Looe Fish Selling Ltd, the Market Auctioneers. It represents the latest phase in the modern market which opened in 1987 with a vibrant “shout auction”, which in turn was modernised in 2004 with an electronic selling and settling system, and which now in 2014 has a new online bidding system as up to date as any in the world.
