Support your local fishermen - Buy fresh shellfish straight from the quayside, or get it delivered to your door!
The coronavirus outbreak has meant that many local fishers can no longer supply their catch to overseas markets or UK restaurants. This could be hugely damaging to their businesses, but YOU can help by buying fresh shellfish straight from the quayside! Many fishers will also safely deliver straight to your door. This is a great opportunity to help your local community ‘stay afloat’, and stay healthy by eating delicious fresh seafood.
Fishermen can post here for free. Just enter details in the contacts page, and it will be loaded online within 24 hours.
