14/04/2015: New ice plant launched as part of £1.2million UK fish market investment

http://www.westernmorningnews.co.uk/New-Ice-plant-launched-1-2million-Plymouth-fish/story-26329423-detail/story.htmlPlymouth Fisheries has unveiled a new ice production facility at its Sutton Harbour base as part of an ongoing UK£1.2 million investment in supporting the region’s fishing industry, The Western Morning News reports.

The new ice plant, which will guarantee the provision of ice on site 24 hours a day, was officially opened by Peter Hartland, Chief Executive of Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, and Richard Stevens, Chairman of the chamber, in recognition of the economic benefits brought about by Plymouth Fisheries revitalising the local fishing industry over the last 20 years.
Now England’s second largest fresh fish market, Plymouth Fisheries has seen turnover increase by UK£17.95 million since the fish market relocated to custom-built new premises in Sutton Harbour in 1995.

The ice plant is part of an ongoing investment in the market by owners Sutton Harbour Holdings plc, and the project has been part funded by a UK£300,000 grant from the European Fisheries Fund (EFF), administered by the Marine Management Organisation MMO, and supported by Plymouth Trawler Agents, which operate the market’s auction.
