Denholm Fishselling's origins lie in a series of locally owned fishselling companies such as: George Walker who had offices in Fraserburgh and Mallaig; John Brown in Buckie and Peterhead: North Minch Fishselling Company in Ullapool and Lochinver Fishselling Company.
These companies were acquired and consolidated by Christian Salvesen into Christian Salvesen Fishselling in the 1970's. In 1986 Christian Salvesen Fishselling was acquired by The Denholm Group which has interests in Shipping, Logistics and Oilfield Services as well as Seafoods. Following the acquisition the name was changed to Denholm Fishselling.
Today Denholm Fishselling looks after the interests of 70 boats in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and on their behalf markets over £40 million of pelagic fish, whitefish and shellfish.
Of these 70 boats, they have a shareholding in 25, ranging from 12% to 50%. Denholm Fishselling also supplies chandlery, fuel and ice to a number of major fishing ports in Scotland.
