West Coast Sea Products (WCSP) was founded in 1968 by lobster fisherman Mr John King. Equipped with his knowledge of fishing King and Queen Scallops in the Irish Sea WCSP grew remarkably under his direction during its first 4 years.
From then on WCSP continued to expand whilst remaining a family run business and maintaining strong links with the local community. The management of the company transferred to John Kings’ son, also John King, upon his retirement. John is now joined in the business by his three children; Stuart, Callum and Alice.
We are proud of how far the company has developed, from one man and his lobster boat to a fleet of 6 vessels, employing 40 fishermen and 100 factory staff;
One man’s vision which has continued through three generations.
WCSP has attracted global renown for the quality of our Scallops, and we are continuously evolving to ensure our product is of superior quality.
2020 proved to be a challenging, yet exciting time at WCSP, with the launch of our bespoke vessel: The Alcedo, the largest boat built in the UK in the last 20 years, and the start of our new local venture, we are now better equipped than ever to serve the growing Scallop market – both nationally and internationally.
