Fishing News Awards 2017
I would like to announce that ‘Fresh From The Boat’ has been shortlisted for ‘Independent Fish Retailer of The Year 2017’ Fishing News Awards 2017.
There are 12 categories in total with one category been ‘Independent Fish Retailer of The Year’
The remit for this category was:
This award recognises local UK or Irish fresh fish retailers that showed continued support to the commercial fishing industry in their community, trading from a shop, market stall or travelling van in 2016. Nominees will demonstrate a focus on supporting locally-landed fish, with a good range of species on offer; encouraging consumers to experience some varieties that are more usually exported, and others which deserve to be more popular.
This is amazing news and I am absolutely over the moon and so very proud. I would like to thank each and every one of our customers who voted for us and took the time to put their thoughts forward of why we should be awarded such a prestigious award.

The tree is now made and on the quay and we shall look at starting to fish for lobsters in the Spring.
BBC Country File
We were very lucky to receive a phone call from the BBC to ask if they could come and visit us to film. They came to stay in Emsworth and filmed us out on the boat and the build of our tree, it will be aired on BBC 1 on the 20th December.
Turkeys Left - Making a real difference to us over the winter.
We still have 10 Turkeys left, all our turkeys have led an amazing life living at Holme Farm, Stansted. They are all free range, fed the best diet. Collection will be from 23rd December at Holme Farm.
Turkey sizes are 15lbs plus at £4.50 per Ib.
I will be looking at running 2 - 3 filleting courses in late January / February this will be for groups of 6. Unfortunately we weren't luck enough to get funding from Chichester Harbour so this will be a paid for course.
You will gain real life long fish skills from descalling, gutting, filleting flat and round fish and get to take your fish home.
The cost will be £35 per person.
All materials you require will be provided.
