"Based in Honiton, we are a local fishmongers, committed to providing fresh, fish and seafood for you."
We are committed to sourcing from local fishermen. Working together to ensure a sustainable future for both fish, and the fishing industry.
The local fishermen we support populate towns along the coastline. These include Beer , a historic fishing town, unspoilt by modern society. Brixham, which has been at the centre of the area's fishing industry for centuries. Lyme Regis, with a historic cobb and harbour area. Dartmouth, a unique costal town with a cobbled market which supplies fresh local produce.
Herrings were once very abundant, they were the "silver darlings" of the Scottish fishery, and were so cheap that they were used as animal feed Stocks are rising, so there are reasons for a bit of optimism. Historically, because herrings don't keep for long and there wasn't any refrigeration, they were salted into red herrings, preserved in vinegar as rollmops (scroll down) and smoked into kippers.
