Robert and Kelly Simonetti are the founders of Robert's Fisheries Ltd. Robert's family have been involved in the Torbay fishing industry for generations. The experiences of his childhood, lead Robert to develop his wholesale and retail fishing business in 1988 now situated in Brixham's newly developed multi-million pound fish quay. Robert's Fisheries starting trading in the Markets of London. The success of this venture, provided the foundations to open their retail shop in Paignton, where they stayed for 20 years before relocating to The New Fish Market in Brixham in 2009.
Robert's Fisheries aim to supply the finest quality of fresh Brixham fish and shellfish. Maintaining the highest standards at all times. A core principle of the family business is to support the local fishing industry, with Brixham being our primary port.
Looking to the future, in spring 2011, we will be opening a brand new fish and shellfish restaurant. Using as much produce from all our local suppliers, we hope to show our customers that local fish is not just about cod and haddock, and introduce them to new varieties. This will help with the sustainability of our waters, hopefully showing you how good other varieties taste.
The name of our new restaurant is ' SIMPLY FISH ', please check our website for more details as they become available, and we very much hope to see you there!
