HOW WE OFFER & PRICE THE FISH
What will I be charged for my fresh fish?
You will only be charged for the exact START weight of your chosen fish, before any preparation (filleting/steaking etc).
Almost all of the fish and seafood for sale on our website is wild and inevitably differs in weight - no two fish weigh the same. Once we have bought your fish from the morning fish markets, weighed it and prepared it in the way you want, we then invoice/bill you for the exact start weight (before preparation weight).
When you select a fish to purchase, you will see the number of people the fish will feed (number of portions), a price per kilo and an approximate weight. Our commitment to you is: your fish will vary in weight by no more than 20%. In practice we normally manage a variance of less than 10%; in many cases we can match the exact weight.
If you decide to have your fish fully prepared and portioned, please do let us know in the comments box of the shopping cart if you would like to receive the bones and trimmings from your fish; we will be pleased to include them.
Is this the same for all fish?No, we also offer some fish and seafood items that are pre-weighed: a variety of fish boxes, frozen fish, ready to eat foods, olives, sauces and rubs etc; all these items are priced per unit of sale and will not vary in weight or price.
What is the difference between 'Cleaned' and 'Filleted'We buy fish direct from fishermen and quayside fish markets, the fish are normally sold cleaned (gutted). We then offer them for you to enjoy as cleaned or filleted.
If you select a fish described as 'cleaned' it will arrive to you gutted, ready to cook.
If you select a fish described as 'filleted' it will arrive filleted with no bones and ready to cook.
As a rule of thumb we normally end up with around 50% fillet weight when compared with a whole weight once the fish has been filleted and trimmed to be oven ready. Don't forget, if you would like us to include the bones from your fish please note this within your order at the checkout.
