Adam Riley, founder of Tynemouth’s renowned Riley’s Fish Shack, is planning a fishmonger’s shop and the development of the Ice Tower on North Shields’ Western Quay.
He plans to open the wet fish shop on Percy Park Road in April, while he hopes to open a new market and langoustine bar at the Ice Tower later this year. Adam said: “North Shields is England’s largest langoustine port. About 1,000 tons of langoustines a year are landed there and 95% of them are exported. The idea is to open a market which acts like a catalyst and helps the fishing industry.” www.rileysfishshack.com
