We are the UK's premier mail order and online fishmonger. We deliver fish and seafood to your door. We do not sell fresh fish - with a very few exceptions such as pickled and tinned fish, all our fish is frozen. We believe our top quality frozen fish is indistinguishable from fresh when it is cooked and on the plate... and often even if uncooked, since we sell an awful lot of sashimi to raw fish consumers who are obviously the most demanding of all fish eaters.
Our range of high quality online fresh frozen fish and online seafood includes smoked fish, organic fish and gourmet shellfish. These are all at your convenience via our online fishmongers. And with equally convenient delivery to your door. (By the way, the stilted and repetitive words on this home page are primarily directed at internet search engines, not humans. If you click on SHOP, we hope you will find the words less tedious. Fingers X'd!)
COMMITTED TO QUALITY
We supply restaurant-grade professionally frozen fish and gourmet seafood to our members and ensure that they have access to the widest variety of fresh fish and seafood online, smoked fish online, fish fillets, whole fish and crustaceans online - for instance 10 kinds of crab and 20 kinds of prawn.
We want to delight you every time you eat our frozen fish and seafood from our online fishmongers shop. We never compromise on quality when we buy fish and seafood for our fishmonger counter. We are usually able to buy larger, restaurant-grade fish and seafood, which makes for a more satisfying fish to eat. And if you are not satisfied with any of our fish or seafood we will refund you. That's GUARANTEED.
FROZEN FISH? AS GOOD AS FRESH FISH?
All our fish is frozen. We passionately believe that unless you live on the quayside where the fish is landed, FROZEN fish is better than FRESH fish. Freezing fish of the highest quality soon after it is landed ensures that the quality is locked in. We defy you to tell the difference between our frozen fish and top quality fresh fish, when it is cooked and on the plate.

EASY ORDERING AND QUICK DELIVERY
To buy fish or seafood from our online fish counter, simply click on the fish you require and pay securely. For delivery of our fish and seafood, we use a NEXT DAY service and special packaging including "dry ice". This ensures your fish and seafood remains frozen en-route.
How about a fish recipe, cookery book or claw crackers to go with your purchase? Yes! We have these too. The Fish Society - your artisan fishmonger - not only offers you a wide choice fish and seafood, but also a collection of recipes, fish and seafood cookery books and accessories.
THE ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY
Fishing and fish-farming raise significant environmental and social justice issues which challenge fish retailers. Within the bounds of commercial reality, we try to do what we regard - and what we believe our customers would regard - as "the right thing". We have discontinued sales of certain kinds of fish - such as shark and bluefin tuna, and we moved all our farmed "fresh" salmon to "organic" a long time ago (smoked salmon... it's more difficult, but we do offer organic smoked salmon). We will always respond to your queries about environment issues, if only to explain why our point of view differs from yours.
