Marking the Start of the 2020 Mackerel Season

Today marks the start of the 2020 mackerel season for Denholm Seafoods, as the vessels owned by its partners sailed from port to fish for atlantic mackerel (scomber scombrus) and horse mackerel (trachurus trachurus) in the rich waters of the North Atlantic.

‘Unity’ is expected to be the first fishing vessel to land its catch at Peterhead Port on Friday 10th January.  Both Denholm Seafoods’ quayside plants will be fully operational, processing the catch into various products to customers’ specifications. 

Denholm Seafoods will also pack fresh mackerel daily for both domestic and export markets, with fresh deliveries made to France and The Netherlands three times per week.
