Time for a more positive outlook!?………. We think so.

Availability has improved across the board as fishing conditions improve and some of our favourite fish species come into their prime.

Flat fish such as Lemon Sole and Plaice are a great addition to your menu for May, the smaller, less utilised sizes can work as a great starter when served as a whole fish. Our expert fishmongers can get them pan ready for you.

If you are looking for a premium fish then Wild Turbot and Bass are both great options and bang in season right now.

The price of Salmon is still high and we do not expect it to recover fully until June or July. The Scottish farms have begun to offer fish again which will provide some relief.

If you are looking for a real GP winner, then you should speak to your Account Manager about the different types of Tiger Prawns we offer. With lots of options you can get an attractive, popular dish on the menu which on a £ per kilo ratio is better value than most other protein options

Wild Turbot will be the target for many of the fishing boats going out from the south coast in May. A fish which costs a premium but worth every penny.
Tiger Prawns are great value and there are many varieties to choose from so if you have a space on your menu, these would be a great choice.
