Covid-19

We are back, fish deliveries have started again so the smokers are once again performing their magic. The shop is open (only Monday to Friday at the moment) but back to 7 days per week soon. The summer season of crabs and lobsters are in full swing and the bass are fattening nicely.

If you would like an order please call and we can advise delivery times, if you intend to visit the shop please ring in advance to reserve your order.

Our sustainable fishing practice


As a small fishing operation we fish very sustainably using gill nets. We are not trawling so don’t indiscriminately scoop shoals of fish out of the water killing everything that is caught, then throw back fish that can’t be used when it is already dead.

Fishing the shallow shifting channels of Wigtown Bay where we have to work to the time of the tide, means we must repeatedly place and raise gill nets about every half hour. The result is any fish caught are still alive when we raise the net.

As we have to take each individual fish out of the net, those we don’t want or that are too small are returned ALIVE, so they can go on and produce the next generation.
