Established in 1974, Barratlantic is a fish and shellfish processing company located on the Isle of Barra - the southernmost inhabited island of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. Our boats fish in the beautiful, clear waters around the Western Isles and off the west coast of Scotland. Our factory sits in the perfect location, just 150 yards from the harbour and with a workforce of 40 staff we guarantee freshness and superior quality.
With over 40 years’ experience, Barratlantic has earned an enviable reputation as a leading wholesale supplier of top grade fresh fish and shellfish, providing a top quality service. We care passionately about sustainable sourcing and delivering the very best seafood from Scotland to the most discerning customers. We have recently invested in a new processing area within the factory, have been working hard in improving standards and have recently achieved our SALSA accreditation. We will endeavor to keep the high standards required.
Our main products are king scallops (pecten maximus) and langoustines (nephrops Norvegicus), however we sell most types of white fish from the quayside. Our daily selection includes: cod; haddock; skate; witches; megrims; turbot; Dover sole and monkfish which you can buy direct from the factory.
Barratlantic is a company that prides itself on freshness and quality and we are always willing to adapt to our customers' individual needs, thus building long, loyal, and prosperous business relationships. We are always looking ahead, investing in people and the future.
