This stunning Fish Display, created in 2014 by Sue and Duncan Lucas of Passionate About Fish, was the centerpiece of the Fish Market and a showcase for the vast array of species which are landed in Newlyn. We're delighted to welcome them back to the Fish Market again this year.
Duncan and Sue Lucas are totally Passionate About Fish, and not just in name. Trustees of The Fishermen's Mission for several years, they were both recognised for their valuable contributions to the charity with special awards earlier this year. Sue is 'living the dream' running their flourishing fishmongers in Camberley Surrey which they opened in December 2014.
Guiness World Record holder Duncan is probably the mostly high skilled fishmonger in the UK. He has worked in the seafood industry for over 35 years. He has a hands-on passionate approach with experience working internationally across many species. Duncan currently works for New England Seafoods in London as Seafood Specialist working on catch-to-plate projects. His experience covers independent retailers and major supermarkets as well as primary and secondary processing of chilled and ready to eat seafood. He is recognised as a leading authority within the industry and holds many awards including the Guinness World Record for filleting halibut!
Sue has spent all her working life in the seafood industry. For almost 20 years, she thoroughly enjoyed life as a fishmonger, running busy independent fish shops. From an independent retailer to Product Developer in seafood manufacturing, she was responsible for developing some of the highest quality, award winning seafood products available through the UK's leading supermarkets.
