Welcome to Grimsby Fish Merchants Association Ltd

 

Developing a Focused and Cohesive Industry

 

 

Grimsby F.M.A was incorporated in 1911.  Membership has declined in recent times due to retirement and consolidation, despite this there are 85 full members and 23 associate members. The majority of members are small processors employing between 5 - 20 staff. However we are proud the large Grimsby based companies who supply 70% of the nations chilled seafood to the major high street retailers are members and support the work of the Association. Collectively members employ circa 2500 people. The Association has a board of seven directors, including one from Hull. We are pleased to have several Hull based processors as members thus creating a strong and focused voice for the Humber processing industry. 

 

The Chief Executive is responsible for the day to day running of the business and is supported by one part-time member of staff. Grimsby FMA is the only Association that is run on a full time basis. One of the primary roles is working with various partners within the industry to develop a focused and cohesive industry; this is essential when lobbying.

  • Changes to marine licensing processes from 6 April
    A number of changes come into to effect from 6 April 2014 affecting applications for developments at sea. The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is responsible for regulating depositing or removal of substances or objects from the seabed or elsewhere in tidal waters under the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009. Since MMO vested in 2010 it has continued to develop the licensing process, resulting in a quicker turnaround and less regulatory burden for applicants.
