What's in season

Spring

Why eat the seasons?

By eating the seasons, you will reduce food miles and help support your local economy…and more importantly, your fish will taste better.

Spring is the spawning season for many species, a time when our industry should be very sensitive to allowing species the time to reproduce. Without safeguarding their future, killing fish before they have had a chance to breed is senseless. We refuse to buy any fish that is in roe, and if they slip through by accident, we let our suppliers know about it!

So at this time of year, we supplement wild fish with some species that are farmed well - like gilthead bream, rainbow trout and seabass, to help nature take its course. The wild fish that are available include the following:

Coley
Crab
Herring
Grey mullet
John dory
Langoustine
Lobster
Mackerel
Pollock
Razor clams
Whiting
