What Fresh Fish & Seafood is in Season?

  The exciting part of cooking wild seafood is buying fish when it's in abundance and in season. It's better for healthy fish stocks and can be much cheaper for you to buy!

We have prepared a chart showing when each fish is at its best and most abundant using colour coding, where green is readily available, amber is available in fluctuating volumes and red is not available or only in small quantities.

Each year brings with it slight changes in availability so, please do call us on 01726 861666 for today's availability.

LOW - Stocks are low do not buy
MED - Fish stocks can vary
HIGH - Fish in season - the best time to buy
