Pengelly's Fishmongers

Pengelly's Fishmongers


The unique conditions in Looe harbour make the fishing community entirely dependent on the tide in order to set out and return to the quayside. As a result a fleet of small day-boats developed over the years, with the fishermen departing and returning the same day. This means that the fish sold on Looe Quay is among the freshest and highest quality in the United Kingdom. Most of Pengelly's fish is line-caught in small numbers, and our net-caught fish are captured using small, non-destructive, netting techniques. Angie and Jackie source their fish direct from the quayside next door to the shop, which means that the fish is as fresh as possible and of the highest standard.
