Amy Salisbury who will be cooking up some culinary seafood delights at the Grimsby HOD.

This year’s Port of Grimsby Heritage Open Day will focus on global connections and trade routes on Saturday 14 September.

Featuring as one of the headlines this year will be Grimsby born seafood chef, Amy Salisbury, representing the Made Great in Grimsby brand and who will be cooking up a storm in the marquee with a seafood demonstration alongside Grimsby’s Master Fishmonger, Ivan Jaines-White.

Simon Bird, Regional Director of the Humber ports said: “Our heritage open days grow year on year and it’s great to see the support made by visitors all interested in the amazing work being carried out in our port at Grimsby.

“We’re pleased to see the seafood sector represented and we can’t wait to see what Amy will be cooking. The event this year will be spectacular as more of the buildings have been transformed and visitors will have an opportunity to explore inside.”

Amy Salisbury, founder of seafood brand Particular & Co, and Ambassador of Made Great in Grimsby said: “I’m looking forward to you all joining me on my fishy mission in my hometown of Grimsby at this year’s Heritage Open Day.

“I’ll be talking all things fish and cooking up some fishy delights that will inspire you to get cooking our delicious seafood at home.  I’m thrilled to be representing the Grimsby Fish Merchants Association’s Made Great in Grimsby at this year’s Heritage Open Day, together we can show how Great Grimsby really is!”

This year’s theme is celebrating trade routes and connections, and the event will be exploring the major roles the port has played over the years and to the present day with global connections.

Visitors can take part in guided tours of the site, listen to talks on various aspects of the port’s history, explore some of the recently restored buildings and listen to music in the marquee. Last year 2,000 visitors enjoyed what is now known as the Kasbah Film Quarter, as ABP pursues the vision around the restoration of the historic buildings for the film and television industry.

Fishing and the sea run deep in Amy Salisbury's genes – not surprising when you consider her family have been setting sail for at least a couple of centuries.  Right down the line, her relatives have been involved in everything from owning and operating fishing trawlers in Grimsby, right through to defending our shores with the Royal Navy during World War Two.  Amy now has an established seafood production business ‘Particular & Co’ sourcing fish via Grimsby and supplying retail accounts in the UK. She is also a brand ambassador seafood chef for the annual ‘Cheese Show’ held in June and cooks alongside celebrity chefs such as James Martin.

Ivan Jaines-White, was awarded Master Fishmonger accreditation in 2019 by the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers. Ivan has had a long and varied history with the seafood sector in the town. Ivan currently delivers filleting training courses at the Seafood Village as a consultant to the industry.

The Made Great in Grimsby brand signifies the scale and importance of the Grimsby seafood processing sector that today directly employs over 5,500 jobs in the region and supports employment of over 10,000 job roles in the supply-chain. Trade in sustainable fish and seafood for all over the world is important to the cluster with much of its seafood arriving in the ABP ports of Grimsby and Immingham.

The event has also been shortlisted to appear in the national heritage open day gallery to celebrate the 30th anniversary. The public are being asked to vote on their favourite. To vote for the Port of Grimsby’s event visit the link here and click opn Midlands and The Port.
