Ship to plate

Our promise to you is to bring you the finest Cornish fish from ship to plate in less than 48 hours.

They say ‘Time and Tide’ wait for no man and when it comes to fresh fish, nothing could be truer.  Our buyers are up before sunrise every day to select the best seafood straight from the local Day Boats.

Our award winning team then work expertly and diligently through out the day grading, weighing, scaling, gutting, filleting and then carefully packing with extra care to give the best possible service to our customers.

Our vans leave Flying Fish and head out on route round the country, five days a week, 52 weeks a year giving our customers a ready and limitless supply of freshly caught Cornish fish.

After years and years of trial and error we’ve got this down to an exact science and a fine art.


“I met Johnny as his first customer in Cornwall.  From that moment, he has not only been the most incredible fish merchant I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, but also a great friend  and an inspiration.  His knowledge for all things fish and general outlook on life, makes me smile”

Wishing you all a Happy New Year.


Due to the new tier restrictions taking place country wide we have had to make the difficult decision that we will not be opening the business as planned on the 4th of January.


We will instead be monitoring the tier systems, when they look like they will be eased we will look at setting a date for reopening the business.  Please bear with us. This is a horrible but unprecedented time, and will be taking this opportunity to carry out some needed refurbishment to the factory to continue our search for perfection. Your support as always has been incredible and for this we are truly humbled. We can’t wait to get back to it and servicing you with the best that Cornwall has to offer.


Our best wishes go out to you and your teams and look forward to seeing you soon.

Take care and stay safe.

Johnny and the Flying Fish Team
