Rather interesting Fraserburgh facts
Did you know that Fraserburgh is Europe’s largest shellfish port? In 2008 it landed over 12000 tonnes of shellfish - prawns and king scallops especially important there. Fraserburgh is likewise the largest pelagic fishing port (fish not caught near the sea-bed) in Europe, accounting for on average 40000 tonnes of whitefish a year. Accordingly fishing and related processing employ roughly 60 per cent of the town’s working population.
