Can I buy fresh fish from you as opposed to frozen?
We believe that our “frozen” fish is the freshest fish you can buy. In many cases, our fish is frozen within hours of the catch. “Fresh” fish sold on a counter can be several days old by the time it reaches the consumer. For this reason, all our products are frozen. * We have many customers who buy our ‘frozen at sea’ fish because they suffer from Histamine intolerance. Sufferers need to eat food at it’s freshest as Histamine develops in food from the time it has been harvested. *

Yes, you can. As long as your billing address matches the address of your credit card you can arrange to have the food delivered anywhere in the UK mainland. Just add your billing address AND delivery address when ordering.

Does your use of dry ice put extra carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere?
No. Dry Ice is solid Carbon Dioxide but this has been captured from natural sources preventing the CO2 from entering the atmosphere in the first instance. So although the CO2 does eventually enter the atmosphere it isn’t extra, it’s just delayed.
