This award recognises local UK or Irish fresh fish retailers that showed continued support to the commercial fishing industry in their community, trading from a shop, market stall or travelling van in 2016. Nominees will demonstrate a focus on supporting locally-landed fish, with a good range of species on offer; encouraging consumers to experience some varieties that are more usually exported, and others which deserve to be more popular.

This is amazing news and I am absolutely over the moon and so very proud. I would like to thank each and every one of our customers & supporters who voted for us and took the time to put their thoughts forward of why we should be awarded such a prestigious award. Many of you know our journey, we are just a husband and wife team, who work tirelessly catching our own fish, whilst also buying other local fishermens catch to support them and give them a fair price for there catch. We practise & preach sustainable fishing to as many people as possible, while educating people to eat more sustainable species.

Over 3 years we gone from been ghosts of the sea, to selling our catch to local people, running a hugely successful not for profit community fish box, selling our catch to many fishmongers, farm shops and locally at many outlets.

We are so very proud of our many achievements and we couldn't of done it without your support! 
The first stage is completed where our customers stated why they feel we should be nominated (shortlisted) for such a prestigious award.

Our Royal Invitation

We had a wonderful invitation to attend the Queens Patrons lunch at The Mall. We were lucky enough to represent the Fishemans Mission and Alishia even got to talk to Kate Middleton!

Despite the rain it was an amazing day!

Lobster Pot Christmas Tree

Christmas 2015 we were lucky enough to create a Lobster Pot Christmas Tree from Pots Purchased by our local community. each person who bought a pot received a Lobster.

Its been a tough year for lobster but we are over half way of completing the order and are still bating the pots everyday.

Thank you to everyone who helped create a wonderful Christmas Tree on The Quay and thank you to BBC CountryFile for coming down and filming us.

Media we have been in

We have been in many newspapers, magazines, television programmes and films over the last few years and we will compile a collection for you to have a look at.
