Est. Ladram Bay 1956
Waterdance is a family-owned fishing company and is part of the Greendale Group. We have 23 boats based in Devon and Cornwall including beam trawlers, netters, potters and scallopers with two new boats currently under construction: a 35-metre beam trawler and a 15-metre potter. All of our boats use our own quota as much as possible but we do also trade quota domestically and internationally.
Our boats land regularly at Brixham, Newlyn, Salcombe and Exmouth. These ports provide direct access to the western channel where clean deep waters and strong currents create the perfect environment for world class seafood. Sustainable fishing methods ensure that these stocks remain intact.
