Frozen vs Fresh Fish
In the vast majority of cases most people would not be able to notice any difference. Like all natural product the quality (or 'freshness') declines from the point the fish is caught. In order to meet the growing demand for produce from outside of the UK then there is always a need to preserve the product using a method appropriate the species.
If stored properly in a freezer, frozen fish can be safely kept for up to 9 months. However, we recommend that you consume the product within 3 months for optimum satisfaction
It is possible to freeze fish at home, but home freezers cannot freeze your fish as quickly as professional processes can. If you've ever been unfortunate enough to experience eating a soggy, rubbery piece of fish, then you have sampled some improperly frozen fish!
Our focus is to deliver your fish and seafood at the optimum quality. Unless you are lucky enough (like our Sri Lankan fishermen) to be able to catch, land and prepare your fish in a few hours, then all fish must be 'preserved' in some way. This may be by keeping in a chilled environment but often fish will be 'flash' or 'quick frozen' at temperatures as low as -40C. This guarantees a better quality product and offers better preservation than keeping fish in a chilled state.
Treatment of the fish and seafood will be tailored to each type / species, ensuring you have the guarantee of maximum freshness.
