Our Rye Depot -

It is our policy to source the majority of our fresh fish locally and sustainably

Our own fleet of upwards of 20 boats means we are intimately involved with the local fishing community on the Kent and Sussex coasts and actively support them by paying fair prices promptly. These relationships mean we have at our disposal an intimate understanding of seasonal runs, and up to the minute awareness of quota allocations.

About Us

OUR PROUD STORY.......

We have always sourced fish direct from local boats and it’s our policy to source the majority of our fresh fish locally and sustainably.

 

In 2015 we purchased and set up our depot in Rye to allow fishermen to land from their boats directly into us and over the years this approach has proved very successful, so much so that we now have upwards of 22 boats landing into us exclusively.

 

The vast majority of our Rye fleet are day boats, so the fishermen catch and return on the same tide, We collect the fish daily and often it’s with our customers’ the next morning, meaning you really can’t get fresher! 

 

As such, we are intimately involved with the local fishing community in Rye and all along the Kent and Sussex coasts and we actively support them by paying fair prices promptly. These longstanding relationships with fishermen and their families mean we have at our disposal an intimate understanding of seasonal runs, and up to the minute awareness of quota allocations.​

With our focus on using responsible sourcing as much as we can, our clients can trust that we value fish enough to ensure it is here to stay. All our catches are traceable to port and even to the individual named boats.
