As restaurant doors shut for lockdown another door opens. Rockfish have fast-tracked the opening of their planned new retail fish market in Brixham. They have their own boat, Rockfisher, which is out at sea today and whenever the weather allows along the southern coast seaboard and her catch will be available to buy as well as fish from the Brixham fish auction each day. It’s hard to enjoy fish this fresh anywhere unless you’re out catching it yourself!
Click & collect is available Wednesday to Saturday – see www.therockfish.co.uk.
How does it work?
Rockfish website is updated every morning with the day’s landing’s.
Place your online order from 7am up until 4pm.
Collect your fresh fish anytime on the same day from 9am – 7pm.
The retail fish market is just 20m away from the world famous Brixham fish market overlooking the fishing boats as they land their catch, which arrives with Rockfish minutes later.
Post lockdown the full shop operation will open but for now those in the Torbay area have just seen a great source of fresh fish added to their shopping experiences.
Restaurateur Mitch Tonks says, “It feels like going back to the very beginning of my seafood journey .. we are opening our retail fish market earlier than planned in Brixham tomorrow, fresh seafood wed – sat , we buy on the market each day, portion it and make it ready for your kitchen, head to therockfish.co.uk, see the days availability, just click, pay and collect, in total safety .. we wlll be fully operational in a few weeks and I can’t wait for that .. it was a good omen that skipper Nick landed this morning in time for tomorrow’s opening too.”
