Whole sea bass and two whole fillets on white background
Sea bass, wild, whole

Whole grey mullet and grey mullet fillets
Grey mullet fillets

A headless trimmed witch sole
Witch sole
There’s no getting away from it, the witch sole is basically a poor man’s Dover sole. But don’t write it off. The one in the picture disappeared down four fork-wielding employees as soon as the photographer finished. And it comes in nice...

Two whole plaice
Whole plaice
These really are the finest fish we can source for a top ’plaice on the bone’ experience. Smaller fish are presented with head, tail and fins removed. Larger ’specimen’ fish have minimal trimming so you can admire the whole thing - these...

Fresh anchovies on white paper
Anchovies - 'fresh'
What, not tinned? No. And not salted either. Not even filleted. Er, did we mention not cleaned? Don’t worry you can cook and eat them whole if you like. A fantastic flavour experience, straight out of the sea, and not remotely like...

Two whole cuttlefish on a chopping board
Cuttlefish
Whole cuttlefish, straight out of the sea (complete with famous budgerigar bill-sharpener - ’the mantle’). Whereas the octopus is all tentacles and not much body, the cuttlefish is tentacle-poor and body-rich - yielding a superb piece of...

On the bone garfish
Garfish
The long and slender garfish is too thin to fillet so we only sell on-the-bone steaks. Which means you will get a close-up look at its remarkable green bones! The colour is perfectly natural and nothing to worry about. An...

Alistair holing a whole large fresh pike

Whole raw salmon on white background
Whole salmon
These are traditional farmed salmon from Scotland. They’re cleaned and descaled, so are ready-to-go. A 2 kilo fish will give you 6 generous or 18 modest portions. A 2.4kg fish will just about squeeze into a standard 24 inch fish kettle....

Two headless flounders
Flounders
Many people would mistake a flounder for a plaice, and you should cook it in exactly the same way. It’s pretty humble fare, but has a loyal following. We only stock this fish intermittently, when we can find specimens of above average...

A whole black bream
Black Bream
This is a Mediterranean fish but it is occasionally caught off Cornwall. You could mistake it for the much more common gilt head bream, and at one time that would have seemed a compliment as the gilt-head was always reckoned to be...
