This week’s fishermen and fishmongers: 12th June

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.

In 2016, Teddy Whitall opened his mussel business alongside the fresh fish and shellfish units, to expand and solidify our place in the industry. With an online shop coming soon, you will be able to order fresh Welsh fish and mussels, bought direct from local boats, to the door.

A traditional fishmongers selling fresh wetfish, shellfish, pates and fishcakes, the vast majority of which is supplied by local fishermen from Felixstowe ferry. To ensure the highest quality, they have a strong relationship with the  local fishermen (including the boss getting out to sea himself when he can!) and aim to produce as much as possible independently. 

Their own smoke house uses oak to create their famous smoked salmon, smoked prawns and mackerel, and our crabs are hand dressed in the shop. None of their products include any dyes or additional flavourings. They also serve cooked shellfish ready to eat, including our own hand-dressed crabs, perfect for lunch or a snack as you enjoy Suffolk’s coastal scenery.
