The Kirkella - Made in Britain

At Collins, we are proud to be British.

For over 40 years, we've been catching high quality frozen fish to ensure the nation's favourite dish is never in short supply.

And our flagship vessel, the Kirkella, is the crown jewel in Collins' fishing fleet and the only white fish trawler registered in the UK.

It is a true titan of the British frozen fish industry, capable of catching 2.3m fish per trip which are then frozen at sea and unloaded back in the UK when it finally docks in Hull.

Some lucky Collins' customers enjoyed a day onboard Kirkella when it docked in East Yorkshire in October, getting an exclusive look at life onboard for the vessel's 30-plus crew members, who spend 12 hours each day trawling icy waters for the freshest cod and haddock.

They had a full tour of this enormous vessel the biggest in Britain including the state-of-the-art machinery inside the factory where the fish are cleaned, filleted, frozen and packaged in preparation for distribution to supermarkets across the country.

Guests also got a glimpse at the living quarters, where the crew can relax after a hard day's work at sea by watching a film in the stylish cinema, exercising at the on-board gym or even unwinding in a hot tub!

And, of course, our visitors got to tuck into a hearty portion of fish and chips, with the delicious fish caught by the crew and cooked by the on-board chef.

That meal - and the Kirkella - really are the Best of British.
