We hope that these frequently asked questions will help to explain what we do.
If there is anything else you may need to ask, please contact us either by email or phone.
Are your prices competitive?
Because we supply the big four supermarkets and also run a substantial factory shop outlet, we have to maintain a huge amount of stock, which gives us exceptional buying power. We then pass these savings onto our customers.
Is frozen fish as good as fresh fish?
Our fish is filleted, packed and frozen within 3 hours of being caught, therefore we can guarantee the quality of our products. Fresh fish, which unless you have seen it being caught, is normally at least three days old. If it is caught a hundred miles out at sea, then landed and sent by road to fish markets, it is then bought and sent to the shops and finally, you get it. Most of the swordfish, tuna, marlin loins we see advertised as fresh are anything up to 12 days old and kept fresh by pumping pure oxygen through the fish loins. With the technology used today, frozen fish takes the worry out of how fresh the fish you are eating really is. Therefore, our opinion is that in most cases, the fish is even better frozen than supposedly fresh.
How long will frozen fish last in the freezer?
We recommend 3 months in a normal domestic freezer.
What is the best way to cook fish?
There are many ways to cook fish but the main rule is to only lightly cook the fish as it tends to get tough if it is cooked for too long (especially shell-fish).
