About Us

Walrus Fisheries was established in 1992 and was borne out of a long running family shellfish business spanning over 50 years. Over this time we have owned and sustainably fished from a number of small fishing vessels, catching lobster, crab and whelks from Ilfracombe to Lundy Island. We now concentrate solely on lobster, sourcing the best of the day's catches from the small fishing fleet in Ilfracombe Harbour as well as boats from other nearby harbours. We are ideally located on the harbour side and have a highly efficient seawater holding system capable of holding over 800kg of lobsters in prime condition. We pride ourselves on supplying the best quality lobsters that north Devon can offer and welcome all customers from those who require only small daily quantities for local restaurants, to larger buyers distributing further afield.
