Pesky's Catch of the Day

Live Lobster

As one of the most prized species that are exported across the world, we're trying to grow as much of a domestic market for these beautiful potted creatures. Each one caught by our long time skipper, Steven, on board the provider - they are sent live in sea kelp in order to keep them cool, calm and safe. Whether split and grilled whole or used for their meat inside a gorgeous mac and cheese - we are bang in season to make the most beautiful dishes.

How it Works

Supporting a fairer, more sustainable fishing industry is as easy as one, two, three...


The Pesky fleet land their day-boat catch into our ports through the afternoon and evening.


Buy the fish in our daily marketplace, and choose exactly how you'd like us to prepare it for you.


Track your parcel as it whizzes across the country on our overnight service - FREE with orders over £35.


Wake up to a box of beautiful fish less than 48 hours since being caught, with every box containing a story of the fisherman you've supported.


Can I have my fish filleted?

Absolutely! When selecting each fish, you can choose exactly how you'd like us to send it, whether whole or filleted. Our amazing team of filleters then expertly prepare your fish the following morning before packing it in your box.

How do I know how many people each fish will feed?

As our fishermen land fish of all sizes, we've gone through each and every one to work out roughly how many people a single fish (or pack) would feed and detailed this information in the product description.

Will my fish always be the size that I've bought?

As our boats catch all shapes and sizes of fish each day, unfortunately it's not possible to be prescriptive on the exact size of fish you'll get. 

However, knowing how frustrating it is when you're left short for your meal, we've labelled each fish close to the bottom of its size boundary. That means more often than not, you'll have the bonus of more fish rather than less!

There may be the odd time when it's a little bit less than the weight you've chosen, but we always keep it to less than 75g of filleted meat.

Do I always buy a whole fish from a fisherman?

Yes! As you're buying your fish directly from the fisherman, that whole fish is yours! However, instead of sending a metre long whopper, we can fillet and prepare the fish to however best suits you.

What is the cost of delivery?

If you buy over £35 of our fishermen's catch, overnight 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 £6.

Can I track my delivery?

Yes! Once your order has been packed and handed to our overnight courier partner, you will receive a text from DPD with your tracking number so you can follow your fish all the way home. If you have not received this message, please contact

How much of the value of my order goes back to the fishermen?

On average, fishermen earn an additional 30% vs selling at their local market and up to 500% more for abundant, sustainable species that have previously never had a market. As Pesky is a 100% transparent market for fishermen to sell to all points in the chain, the full value of the fish, after distribution costs, is returned back to boats. Therefore, by buying direct, you are actively supporting the people who put in the effort to catch your fish!

Supporting the Fleet

Seasonality of species; the height of the waves; the strength of the tide - there are so many factors that impact fishermen and their ability to catch fish on a daily basis. On average, fishermen earn an additional 30% by selling their catch directly to households vs selling at their local market. For more abundant, sustainable species that previously never had a market, this can leap to up to 500% more.

  • Fairer prices for fishermen 

  • A market for abundant, sustainable species
