Fish

Fresh fish from the boat to your door

Our market opens its doors at 6pm and shuts at midnight, from Monday to Thursday. You’ll be able to buy the fish from the boats that day, but when it’s gone - it’s gone. The sea can be a cruel mistress, so stock will change from day to day depending on the weather. You’ll also be able to pick up some hand-reared fish from Britain’s most trusted producers.

Connecting customers with skippers and producers

It really is as simple as buying fish directly from the boats. Our chain is so transparent that you’ll know which skipper landed your fish, when and how it was caught and on which boat. It’s as close to standing on the dock and waving them home as you can get without putting on oilskins.

Meet a few of the fish you’ll see on the market and the amazing people who land them.

Our approach

1

Access

We’ve removed barriers between boats and producers and the people who actually want to buy their catch, whether that's a few Gurnard fillets for homemade fish fingers midweek, or a whole Bass for a Saturday night showstopper.

2

Traceable

Every touchpoint in our chain is 100% transparent both ways, so you know who caught your fish, how it was caught and when it was landed and fishermen and producers know what buyers are doing with their catch.

3

Sustainable

The best way to keep the fishing industry alive is by using sustainable practices, so we only work with fishermen who use sustainable catch methods, such as only landing fish in a key stage of their life-cycle.

We hold ourselves and our suppliers to the highest standards of animal welfare and have developed a leading Sustainability Measurement Framework.

Fully Curbside Recyclable Packaging

The moment the market closes at midnight our team of skilled handlers prepare the orders. They're packed in fully curbside recyclable boxes supplied from the team at TemperPack. Their ClimaCell boxes are manufactured from renewable plant-based components and paper. They're designed to protect your fish and keep it at the right temperature during transportation, ensuring it reaches you in perfect condition.

The orders are then sent out via DPD on overnight delivery arriving with you the following day.

The quality of seafood landed by our in-shore fleet and supplied by our incredible British Producers is unrivalled. Especially when it's this fresh. So we go to every length to ensure it's handled with the care and attention it deserves and you'll be able to pick a delivery slot that suits you.

FAQs

All fresh fish can be frozen. We recommend freezing your catch as soon as you receive your delivery. When you defrost them, it is important that you do this thoroughly before cooking. It is best if you defrost them in the fridge and use them within 24hrs . Please remember that live products like clams and mussels should never be frozen.

If you buy over £35 of our fishermen's catch, delivery from port to door is free! However, if you're just after a few little treats from the day's landings, a smaller box only costs £5.

If you need to make any special changes or would like to cancel your order, we only request that you let us know before midnight by sending us an email to ahoy@peskyfish.co.uk. This is because our port team runs a very tight ship, working to specific timeframes for grading, packing and delivery to ensure you can have your catch on the table next day!

Your order is carefully prepared and packed the following day after the evening market closes. It is then shipped to you via overnight courier, arriving with you the following day.

We are sorry to hear your order is taking longer than expected. Your order is prepared, packed and shipped the morning after your order is placed. It is then shipped on a Next-Day delivery service and should arrive throughout the following day. If it hasn't we would like to help you find out why.
