Our Story

"The fruits of the North Sea are seldom equalled - never surpassed. The North Sea Fisherman has always been aware that he is handling the best any sea has to offer and he has always handled it with the care and reverence it deserves"

Our-StoryOur business continues to evolve - From our roots in 1958 as Moray Fish Supply, based in Buckie, Scotland then expanding overseas with a second facility Moray Fish Internaional in Barcelona Spain in the 1970's. Later renaming the Scottish operation to Moray Seafoods in the 1980's as the product range developed more into shellfish. And then with further changing times in 2011 the family decided to sell the volume production and wholsale business Moray Seafoods Ltd and shortly after Moray Fish International with family member James Eckersley choosing to develop and focus on the speciality retail sector under the new brand of Highland Bay Seafoods.

Since then the brand has grown and in 2016 Highland Bay Seafoods furthered its develoment and growth plans by making links with the highly respected Aquascot Group, a specialist Scottish salmon and prepared seafood producer based north of Inverness at Alness.

Today and tomorrow through our comprehensive product range we focus on delivering speciality Scottish seafood to retail markets both at home and abroad.
Highland Bay Seafoods is an exclusive brand, a one stop shop to delivering the REAL taste of Scotland, our finest seafood larder.
