Stickleback Fish is an approved fresh fish processor and cold store (approval number UK WH010 EC). We are fully compliant with the Safe and Local Supplier Approval (SALSA) standard. All our customers receive our Food Safety & Quality Policy, which is reviewed annually.

For your convenience, your fish will be fully prepared and packaged at our modern facilities in Welham Green, Hertfordshire, ready for delivery Monday to Saturday. You’ll be amazed at how much fish we process on a daily basis!
