Demersal fish

Sole, plaice, dab, gurnard, mullet and squid are demersal fish species. 'Demersal’ is derived from the Latin word demergere (to sink). These species live close to the sea bed.

Our vessels operate from various ports, depending on the season. The fishing is done on the North Sea and in the English Channel. Our demersal fish is sold at the fish auction in Scheveningen. In total, some 600 - 700 deliveries are made per year. This means that our fish is on sale fresh in Scheveningen almost every working day.
