Latest update: 11:00 on Tuesday 11th May 2021

We’re expecting fresh yellowfin tuna, kingklip and hake, live oysters and mussels on Friday 14th May.

Delivery: Saturday 15th May
Collection : Friday afternoon (Liz or Ren will be in touch with you to confirm a timeslot)

Our DEAL OF THE WEEK is on frozen trout portions.  These are 200g portions of trout which are sustainably farmed in Franschhoek. This week for only R90/portion (normal price R100/portion).  Frozen hake, kingklip and tuna are also discounted this week.

We can assure our customers that our fish is caught by the most sustainable methods. All our hake and kingklip is caught by long line in accordance with the South African Longline Hake association, of which our supplier is a member. See https://www.sahlla.co.za/ for details. Most of our line fish is also caught by long line (eg tuna and swordfish) or sometimes rod and reel (eg yellowtail). The fish come onto the boat one by one (i.e. not in a net), thereby greatly reducing bycatch.
