BTA Ice Plant
BTA supply ice to the fishing boats, to the market and to the fish buyers. Ice is critical to maintain the quality of fish on board every fishing vessel and also to keep the temperature constant when the catch is landed en route to being sold.
Our ice plant is managed and operated by Phil Allen who has over 30 years experience of supplying ice to the fleet of boats using Brixham Fish Market.
Ice is available from 5pm on a Sunday right through until 3.30pm on a Friday, on a 24 hours a day basis. Any trawlers that need ice on a weekend morning can book this service in advance by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ice Making Plants
BTA also have 3 smaller ice making plants that provide ice solely for the fish market. These ensure the quality of fish is maintained right from when it is unloaded from the fishing vessels, all the way through until it is sold and made ready for delivery.
Breakdown Cover and Seasonal Supplies
Although many of the larger beam trawlers have their own on-board ice machines, BTA can cover for any breakdowns they may have and provide ice to many visiting vessels during the cuttle fishing season (around September to March).
