Shetland Islands Council – Scalloway Fish Market
Demolition of existing and construction of new fish market on Shetland

The original Scalloway fishmarket, which was built in the 1970’s and refurbished and extended in the 1990’s, has now been demolished and CHAP Group have begun the construction of its new state-of-the-art replacement.

A new facility was desperately needed as the volume of fish being landed rose by 600% between 2004 and 2015. Vessels were often turned away and were unable to land their catch due to lack of capacity.

Shetland Islands Council awarded CHAP the tender for the new Scalloway Fish Market in October 2018 and demolition started in December 2018.  The project has progressed extremely well and is currently on-target for a December 2019 completion – 3 months ahead of schedule.
