Become a Fish Buyer

What you need

Brixham Fish Market operates in a business-to-business environment and is only
open to the general public during one of our regular Fish Market Tours.
If you operate a business and want to buy fish from the market then there are
certain criteria to be met before that can happen. You / your business must:

  • Obtain a fish buyers licence* from Torbay Council Harbour Authority.
  • Register with Environmental Health.
  • Contact Brixham Trawler Agents to set up a Bond or Guarantee with your
    bank (or a cash bond) to cover the value of the fish you want to buy.
  • Agree to our Terms and Conditions when you first log onto the Aucxis web based clock. The full terms and conditions can be viewed here.

Further Information

More information regarding this process can be supplied through BTA’s Auctioneers office. Please contact john@bxta.co.uk

The auctioneers will be able to talk you through the process and advise with regard to:

  • Setting up an account
  • Agreeing the value of Bond required and how to set this up with your bank
  • Discussing bank account details for weekly payments

The criteria set by the licence includes 7 day payment terms. If your Bond value is reached before this time, additional payments to reduce the amounts owed will be required.
