Specialist Suppliers of High Quality Fresh Fish
All of our local boats, fish and land daily, to provide an ethical and sustainable way of fishing. Locally landed turbot, bass, squid, brill, gurnard, ray, mullet and amazing shellfish are all caught and brought to the shop within hours. The finest quality lobsters and crabs are also prepared and cooked to order on the premises.
Our boats sail around the Thanet coastline. From Margate, to Broadstairs, to Ramsgate and to Deal, all fishing boats are under 10m. We fish single handedly, or with just one additional crew member. Potting boats target the local shellfish, and both our netting and lining boats, are used to target the many different species that change with the seasons. This way of fishing allows us to provide one of the most variable quality catches anywhere in the British Isles.
