Quite possibly one of the tastiest and easiest seafood dishes you could cook, these whitebait are a genuine sensation. It's unlikely we'll have a particularly long season of them, so I'd suggest getting them in now when they're ripe, rich and delicious. A pack will be a brilliant starter for 4 or a generous main course for 2. Bring lashings of Smoked Paprika for the dusting and enough garlic aioli to wipe out Transylvania. Enjoy!

What size fish should I buy?

We recommend a serving size of 250g whole fish per person. That equates to around 120-160g of meat yielded from a whole fish when filleted or eaten off the bone.

All of our fish has serving suggestions in the size options, which are generated using the above recommendation.

Does everything come ready to cook?

All of our fish and seafood arrives ready to cook unless otherwise stated.

Some small species like sprats and sardines are delivered whole and will require gutting before being cooked. Please check product descriptions for more info.

Can I freeze my order?

All fresh fish in your order can be frozen in their packaging. If you are planning to freeze all or part of your order, we recommend doing so as soon as you receive your delivery for best quality.

To defrost, pop your fish into the fridge overnight. Once defrosted, consume within 24 hours.

Please note - some shellfish are not suitable for freezing, check product descriptions for more info.

What is the shelf life?

Everything comes direct from fishermen and producers, meaning most fish will arrive to you with at least 5 days shelf life. Some species like mackerel are best eaten within 3 days of delivery.

Every pack has a printed use by date for reference.

Is it sustainable?

Our goal is to deliver a global supply chain that guarantees both the regeneration of fish stocks, as well as the livelihoods of the fishermen who fish for them, giving you the absolute confidence that your purchases are actively working to:

1. Rehabilitate all commercially exploited fish stocks and support their continued growth.

2. End irreversible damage to ecosystems.

3. Deliver an ecologically and economically sustainable market for Regenerative Fishing.

What packaging do you use?

To support our path to a net-zero supply chain, your order is shipped in 100% kerbside recyclable packaging meaning nothing goes to landfill, nor the oceans.

In fact, we've already saved over 15,000 cubic feet of polystyrene from going to landfill. That's over 3 London double decker buses full!
