WHY CHOOSE SUSSEX PRIME CATCH?
Sussex is located predominantly on the south coast of England with around 90 miles of shoreline from Camber in the east to Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the west.
The responsible management of the coastline and its marine life is a fine balancing act between environmental, social and economic pressures. By choosing local and seasonal seafood that has been caught from well-managed stocks and with the least impact on the ecosystem, we can all continue enjoying fresh and high quality Sussex seafood.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
- 12x prime fillets weighing approximately 2kg (total weight).
- Each fillet will weigh approximately 170g.
To ensure we are protecting fish stocks you will be provided with a seasonal selection of fresh fish, caught within the last 48 hours.
Here are some of the species of fish you might see (entirely dependent on what the boats bring in);
- Dover Sole
- Wild Bass
- Red Mullet
- Lemon Sole
A single fillet from our Sussex Prime Catch Box is the perfect size for a light lunch (maybe grilled with a side salad or some cous-cous) or a main meal (with some more substantial sides). For a child you may wish to reduce the portion a little.
If you are making a meal by weight, such as a fish pie or a fishcake, then, of course, these fish are exactly the same as any other fillet you’ve used before.
If you’re stuck for ideas on how to serve your fish then panic not – check out our ever-growing list of recipes here.
Our fish is as fresh as you can get without fishing it yourself, so while we recommend eating it as early as possible, it will last in your fridge for up to two days.
If you think you will need to freeze some/all of your fish, then we recommend freezing them as soon as possible. The quicker you freeze them the fresher they will taste when you defrost them (in the fridge for 24hrs).

Every now and then weather prohibits us from being able to fish, either entirely, or for certain species. On these rare occasions you will find some of our frozen fish in your box instead of fresh. Rest assured, these are still fish from our own boats, locally sourced, seasonal, and fresh at the time of freezing.
