Local Fresh Fish & Shellfish!

Fresh From The Boat in Emsworth, is a fishmongers shop owned and run by Peter Williams.

We are an Emsworth, Hampshire based fish shop, passionate about conservation and catching  and providing your fish in the most sustainable ways possible.

Majority of the fish and shellfish we sell are caught at sea by our own Fishing Vessel ‘Brenda C’ and I’m passionate about sustainability, catch care and getting sparkling fresh fish to you at our Emsworth Harbour fish shop and fish counter.

My fish is fully traceable and delivered in the quickest timescale possible, from sea to plate (normally within 12 – 24 hours).

When you buy fish, you want to buy it with confidence. Fresh whole fish should be clear, bright eyed, bright red gill, moist skin, shiny, the tail should be stiff, and the flesh feel firm, it should have a sea-fresh smell! When buying from ‘Fresh From The Boat’ we give you that confidence!

We also supply farm shops, seafood shops, fish and chip shops, fishmongers, pubs, restaurants and hotels.

Our Local Fishermen

Owner of Fresh From The Boat Ltd is Peter Williams, a local Hampshire fisherman. He prides himself in sustainable caught fish.

Before becoming a full time fisherman, Peter was manager at a children’s home where he lived in 7 days a week offering full time care to some of the most vulnerable children we have in the UK. However Peter’s true passion and draw was to the sea, working with mother nature and seeing what fish he could provide to the local community.

He is joined by Marcus, who is a local fisherman based in Itchnor, he has fished for over 30 years. Marcus has helped Peter on a number of occassions and they often fish closely together.

Glen’s boat is a Cheetah Cat and based in Northney Marina. Glen mainly fishes for all his fish using a rod and line and predominantly fishes for seabass.

Russell is based in Mudeford. He catches his fish using nets and pots. We take a regular deliveries of fish direct from his fishing boat.
