Buying Fish & Seafood

Buying fresh fish couldn’t be easier, especially if you visit your local fishmonger.

Fish is such a great option. There are so many varieties to choose between and have a wide range of flavours and textures – so there’s something for everyone. It’s a really healthy choice with plenty of nutrients - experts recommend at least two fish portions a week (one of fish should be oily like mackerel, salmon and fresh tuna). And it’s not as expensive as you might think.

In order to get really fresh fish and great prices we recommend seeking out your local fishmonger. As well as recommending a particular type of fish (some are more readily available than others depending on the season), they can also help with ideas for recipes and prepare the fish for use. If you ask nicely they may even show you how to do it yourself.

Here in Milford Haven we are fortunate to have an excellent fishmonger right on the quayside - no one knows fish better than The Fish Plaice. They are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 1pm and can be contacted on 01646 692331.
