We are the prime suppliers of crab meat in Cornwall.
At W Harvey & Sons we sell crabmeat and other crabmeat products
to many other merchants, shops, caterers, hotels, etc. Crabs are the core
part of our business, stored in our seawater holding tanks for the shortest
period to ensure top quality for our customers.
” The attention to detail, working practices and quality
product that W Harvey & Sons display are of the highest standards.
Not only is their crabmeat delicious, but it is all sourced locally from
either their own fleet or from Cornish fishermen!”
- David Briggs Seafish
W Harvey & Sons has its own small fleet of shellfish boats
operating from Newlyn, but acts as a major south west shellfish
merchant, buying catches from vessels all over Cornwall, Devon and beyond.
At its Stable Hobba processing works, a detached building holds a maintenance
store to keep the Harvey shellfish fleet in operation 12 months per year.
Shellfishing is an environmentally sound fishery. It
does not kill porpoises, dolphins or seals. Anything that is too small
from the pot is put back into the sea to carry on breeding (but has also
had a free meal from the bait whilst in the pot!), as are berried lobsters
and crabs. It does not damage the environment the pot is in and sea bed
is left unharmed.
