Walrus Fisheries was established in 1992 and was born out of a long-running family shellfish business. Based in Ilfracombe harbour, "Our Jenny", owned and skippered by Geoff Huelin, fishes the North Devon coastline as far as Lundy Island, catching lobster, crab and whelks by traditional potting methods.
Walrus Fisheries prides itself on responsible, sustainable fishing, and supplies and delivers top quality lobster and crab to the local area.Our aim is to “keep it local”, supporting local food initiatives and cutting down on food miles, allowing local restaurants to serve the best quality, freshest produce that North Devon has to offer.
We supply and deliver live Lobster, Brown Crab and Spider Crab to restaurants, hotels and private customers in a wide area across North Devon. We guarantee a high quality of shellfish and a friendly and reliable service. Our catch could be on your plate within hours!
Where the timing of our shellfish landings do not coincide with your requirements (or the boat cannot sail due to bad weather), we can still meet your order by supplying you from our large purpose-built seawater temporary holding tanks located close to Ilfracombe harbour.
Please note – we do not supply cooked lobster or prepared crab – live deliveries only.
Cooked lobster and dressed crab can be sourced from Mor-Shellfish-T-Eat (see links page for details).
We operate from April until the end of September – please see our prices and delivery pages for further details.
