Alistair: The Main Man


Alistair founded the Fish Society many years ago. When he’s not filleting he writes all those fishy blurbs, a task which reminds him of his previous existence as a journalist.

Favorite fish: Best North Atlantic Peeled Prawns

Kim: Kool, kalm and kollected


Kim looks after all the orders. She really loves people who don’t give an instruction for “where to leave if I am out”, especially if they have left the wrong phone number. She is also the sweetest-sounding outbound telesales lady on the planet.

Favorite fish: Black Cod

Marc: Handy with a knife


Marc is filleting some very handsome red mullet as I write this. He learned to do this as a chef, a skill he often deploys at Fish Palace when a new item needs to be tasted. He has nine children, but that’s another story!

Favorite fish: Cockles

Ben: IT demon


Our non-fish eating vegetarian IT man never works with his shoes on and would much rather turn the radiator up than put a jumper on. We tolerate this because we like him and when he’s not taking a month off in India, he keeps our IT working smoothly.

Favorite fish: “I’M A VEGGI”

Chi: Sassy stock artist


Chi is our highly educated stock clerk who keeps all of our weird and wonderful products in order. She is originally from Hong Kong and completed University in Surrey. We are happy to have her and she makes sure we don’t miss any detail.

Favorite fish: Madagascan prawns

Lorna: The librarian of fish


Lorna browses and selects fish with the intricacy of a seasoned librarian in an age-old library. Down in the deep freeze the fish are catalogued and graded in a style that resembles the shelves of a library. Lorna is our  master librarian

Favorite fish: Monkfish

Jeremy: Fishing mad


Jeremy gets involved in the marketing and operations of The Fish Society. He preaches the word of fish to the people of Britain and abroad. He has grown up a fisherman and loves examining the new fish as they arrive at Fish Palace from seas near and far.

Favorite fish: Scottish Scallops

Ange: Money Penny


Ange keeps the boat afloat and sailing in the right direction where money is concerned. Her cats diet become dramatically more luxurious after Ange started working here with its monthly helpings of fish mishapes.

Favorite fish: Halibut


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!)

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.

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.

As fishmongers, we usually have in stock all our members favourites, including wild salmon fillets, halibut fillet steaks, whole lemon sole, John Dory fillets and many more. We stock many gourmet smoked fish (including smoked salmon, smoked eel fillets, Arbroath smokies, and kippers). Browse our members' favourite smoked fish - the list is sure to include what you are looking for. As a fishmonger we supply a variety of gourmet seafood including huge Indian Ocean prawns, scampi which are strangers to breadcrumbs, jellied eels, freshly cooked lobsters and crab. Don't miss the Special Offers at our online fish counter.

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.
