Second Auctioneer Sought

Second Auctioneer Sought

The Newlyn Pier & Harbour Commission (NPHC) is responsible for operating the Newlyn Fish Market and wish to appoint a second auctioneer to operate alongside the current auctioneering company.

Following the successful bid for European grant funding, an extensive £1.3m refurbishment of the existing market will commence in September 2017 providing a modern facility to support the fishing industry in one of the South West’s premier fishing ports.

NPHC is responsible for providing and maintaining the Fish Market infrastructure, but the new auctioneers will be free to propose their own selling platform, subject to industry norms and standards, and approval of NPHC.

Closing date for the submission of expressions of interest and outline proposals is 30 September 2017 with the award of the auctioneer’s licence expected to take effect on completion of the Fish Market refurbishment project due to be completed in 2018. Further information can be obtained from:
