THE FISH COUNTER

 

At the Great Cornish Food Store we celebrate our peninsula proximity to the sea with a comprehensive serving of seafood. Our three metre length fish counter is stocked daily and managed by our trained fishmongers. Scroll down further to read more about our suppliers….

 Our main fish supplier is Wing of St Mawes, but we also get out shellfish from Seafood and Eat it.

Rob Wing is a fish merchant and online fishmonger who started his working life as a chef then spent time at sea as a fisherman before becoming a merchant, and now also a Newlyn Harbour Commissioner. With his understanding of fish from every angle, his rule of thumb is to work with nature – avoid the breeding seasons and buy according to what’s abundant – which will usually mean you’re eating it at its best and also landing the best value.

We are very proud to be working with such a local company and one that has built an excellent reputation for sourcing and providing good quality fish, on a daily basis.

A small note on SEAsonality…

With so much choice and lots of different factors to take into account, it’s not always an easy question to answer. You’ll find most types of fish to some extent throughout the year but there are definitely optimum times to choose different species in order to keep fish stocks healthy and to get the best taste and quality. However, because fish habits and habitats are affected by the weather and sea conditions – as is the fishing – it can be a tricky old business trying to categorically define the availability of fish from one season to the next.
