The Fishmongers’ Company is one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London, and among the most ancient of the City Guilds. For over 700 years, as well as fostering the fellowship among our members, we have upheld standards in the trading of fish and shellfish and supported the fisheries industry – roles it still plays today.
Core activities include support for a number of fish and fisheries-related organisations, including the UK Marine Biological Association, the Salmon & Trout Association and the Shellfish Association of Great Britain all of which we helped establish. The Fishmongers’ Company also supports a range of charities, notably Gresham’s School in Norfolk, the City and Guilds of London Art School and the Billingsgate Seafood Training School at the heart of the country’s largest – and oldest – fish market. At the centre of the Company is the magnificent Fishmongers’ Hall with its distinguished riverside location.
