Our interactive map is constantly growing with new fishermen, fishmongers and merchants from across the country. Each week we will feature some of the new entries to the site, telling the story of the methods they use to catch, prepare and sell their seafood and the range of species available across the UK.
Serene Skye is a local, family-owned fishing business based in Appledore, Devon fishing around the Bristol channel. Launched last year, Shaun loves to sell his catch fresh from the Quayside however since the outbreak of COVID-19, the fish docks have closed. Now, they have moved their sales online, allowing those in the local area to buy their skate, live lobster, turbot or whatever they have brought in that morning and get it delivered to your door.
Butler Diving are scallop divers harvesting from the West Coast of Scotland. They collect hand dived King Scallops, Urchins and Speared Fish and sell them direct from their store on Lochgilpead and their online site. Hand diving can be one of the most sustainable fishing methods as unlike dredging it does not disturb the seabed and allows fishermen to be highly selective.
Combining oyster growing, a fleet of fishing boats and a smokehouse, Pinneys of Orford offer a wide range of seafood from its shop in Orford, Suffolk. From their online store and shop you can buy soles, cod, skate and bass caught from their two fishing boats or you can sample the oysters grown next door on the Butley Creek.
Len and Mandy Walters have been processing fish and shellfish caught by their own vessels for the last 14 years. Len has been fishing for 30 years out of Cardigan. All of the products offered by Cardigan Bay Fish are sourced directly from their vessels or fishermen based in Cardigan. Len and Mandy pride themselves on being able to offer fresh product, processed as soon as it’s landed to maintain flavour and quality.
You can find Mandy on her stall at St Dogmaels local produce market located next to the Coach
House next to St. Dogmaels Abbey from 9 til 1 and Cardiff Riverside Market on a Sunday morning.
