Port seeking fish market tenders
Tenders will be sought next month for companies wishing to run a proposed new fish market in Cornwall.

The 7m project is designed to ensure more fish is processed in Newlyn rather than being sent outside the UK.

Currently 80% of the fish landed in Newlyn goes straight to continental Europe for processing.

Tony Woodhams, Newlyn Fisheries Project Officer, says a new market with units for processing would add considerable value to the catch in the port.

He says the present building is expensive to keep cold and a new one would be easier to maintain.

Outline planning permission will be sought next month.
