Our Story

Fresh From The Boat is run by Chantelle & Peter Williams. Predominately Chantelle is land based and you will see her in the shop with an amazing array of Fish and Peter is out on at sea facing all weather situations catching various species of Fish using his very own vessel ‘Tia Maria’.

Our ethos over the last 15 years is quite simple – to provide local people with sustainable fresh fish at a affordable price!

Our fish is caught locally with low food-miles and delivered from sea to plate in the quickest timescale possible!

Our fishing vessel is based within Emsworth and we also get additional catch from other local fishermen. Click here to read more.

Your fish is cared for from the minute it is caught. Kept in icey-tech cool boxes on ice on our boats, then transferred to a temperature-controlled van the minute it hits land.

We can prepare your fish however you like, from descaling to gutting or even filleting!

We also supply lots of local business’s, restaurants, farm shops, public houses & fish mongers.

Fresh From The Boat is a proud member of The Emsworth Business Association and The National Federation of Fishmongers.

April 2016 we also won Havant Family Business of The Year 2016 and the most prestigious award of the evening, The Havant Small Business of the Year 2016.

2017 we were shortlisted as ‘Independent Fresh Fish Retailer of The Year 2017’ within UK & Ireland, with the Fishing News Awards.

2018 – We are so proud and honoured to have won ‘Independent Fresh Fish Retailer Of The Year’ with the Fishing News Awards.

2019 – This was a real testing year for us at Fresh From The Boat. We continued to grow, however I (Chantelle), owner of Fresh From The Boat, was taken very ill and I had major brain surgery, in London 22 November 2019. March 5th 2020 I went back to work and reopened Fresh From The Boat. I’m still slowly recovering and working hard to support local people, especially during the Covid Crisis.

2020 – May 2020 we were awarded Grant Funding from Fishmongers Hall & Seafarers Uk and are using this fund to buy vital equipment to continue to support our local families with Fresh Fish.

June 2020 – We are absolutely overwhelmed to announce that we have received one of the highest accrediations in the fishing industry of ‘Mobile Fish Shop 2020’ with the Master Fishmonger Awards.
