The Fish Shop opened its doors in December 2014 with the ambition of bringing the freshest fish from around the UK to our friends and neighbours in Camberley, Surrey.
Since our opening we have been amazed by the response, and it has been truly humbling to welcome so many visitors to our shop from near and far.
We have stayed true to our core values, ensuring that every single product we sell is the freshest, best quality available and we are really proud to be able to showcase the best fish in the world. We work closely with a very select few suppliers, who share our values, and we have close friendships with many of the fishermen who catch the fish you will find on our counter. We also actively support The Fishermen’s Mission which is the only fishermen’s charity that provides emergency support alongside practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care, helping all fishermen, active or retired and their families. We have helped to raise funds and awareness for this very worthwhile charity for many years and were very proud to be awarded their Outstanding Achievement Award in 2013.
And finally to our team – Jasmine, Tiago, Charlotte and Jonathan – our business simply wouldn’t be what it is without them. They are truly inspirational and wonderful to work with. They are as passionate about the business as we are and we are very lucky to have them on board
We hope you enjoy our website. If you would like to contact us for any additional information, or would like to give us feedback please get in touch
We’d love you to cast a vote
So many of you have enjoyed our #AjaxHake over the last 3 years and we’re absolutely delighted that Alan and the crew of the Ajax have been nominated for 2 industry awards (we did nominate them, along with many others in the fish industry)
If you would like to ‘cast your vote’ for Alan, the link is below. It would be absolutely amazing for this hard working, dedicated, passionate fisherman to get the full recognition he truly deserves
The category that you can cast your vote in is ‘Demersal Fisherman of the Year’. The ‘Sustainability Award’ for the excellent work that Alan was heavily involved in to get the Cornish Hake through MSC certification is not open for public vote but will be decided by experts within the industry
It only takes a couple of minutes and we’d really appreciate your help to get Alan and the crew recognised.

Help us to achieve our #TeamFish Goal for 2018
So many of us watched David Attenborough’s Blue Planet and, like the majority of our customers, #TeamFish were horrified by the shocking images of plastic pollution. So, after thinking long and hard about what more we could do, we started 2018 with our New Year Resolution to ‘significantly reduce our packaging output’
We’ve come a long way in a short space of time, but there’s still so much that can be done and with your help we can definitely do so much more.
A few things we’ve done so far…
❤️ Given out over 3000 free reusable coolbags – with more on the way
❤️ Replaced our plastic carriers and HDPE fish bags with paper alternatives
❤️ Replaced our polystyrene trays with fully recyclable / made from recycled alternatives
❤️ Introduced compostable / fully recyclable paper packaging for some of our products
❤️ Replaced single use spoons and forks with wooden alternatives
❤️ Over 500 customers Christmas Orders were packed in cardboard boxes instead of plastic carriers
❤️ Since we opened we’ve always separated our organic, recycling and non-recyclable waste. And the vast majority of our non-recyclable waste is used to produce electric energy
❤️ Encouraged our customers to bring in their own re-usable dishes to totally eradicate the need for any packaging at all ????
What you could do to help…
❤️ Remember to bring in your coolbags or, if you don’t have one yet, a reusable carrier bag
❤️ Consider bringing in your own dishes to take your fish home in
❤️ Rinse out all of our plastic packaging and make sure it goes into your recycling bin
❤️ Let us know of any packaging ideas or plastic-free initiatives you’ve seen elsewhere – we’re open to all suggestions
❤️ Spread the word ????
There is still a long, long way to go, and at the moment we are working with what we believe are the ‘least worst’ packaging options available. But, as things change and better food packaging solutions come onto the market we can move very quickly to become even less reliant on plastic

Valentines Menu 2018
If you know what you’d like, or would like a little help making your selection, give us a call on 01276 66618 and we can take you through the various options and pop your order in the book. There will be lots available on the day, but we do recommend placing an order as we can sell out very quickly on busy days
A real treat – our lobster platter for 2
We’ve got lots more great ideas, so get in touch and we can help you make a truly memorable evening
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New year and that 2018 brings you love and happiness
We’ll be back to normal later this week, opening on Thursday 4th January at 7:30am. Although fishing has resumed, it is being hampered dramatically by Storm Eleanor which is hitting our coastal towns hard over the next few days. There will be lots of beautiful fresh fish available, but the selection may be a little limited as we navigate through the first few days of the New Year
#TeamFish are all excited and motivated for 2018, as we’re all becoming exclusively Pescatarian for the month of January (vegetarian was a step too far for us carnivores). We’ll be posting our recipes and pictures throughout the month and are looking forward to sharing our meal ideas with you all. For those of you who use Social Media you also can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
We’re very much looking forward to getting back to work, and hope to see you all soon
With just a few sleeps left, tomorrow (Saturday 16th) is the last day to place your orders for Christmas and New Year
If you need a little help or inspiration our Christmas Leaflet has some lovely ideas showcasing some of our most popular products. Or if you’re not sure what you fancy, give us a call or pop in and we’ll be happy to take you through some options
Fish will be very short as we head towards the weekend, so we do advise you to consider getting ahead of the game and buying your fish a little early. Fresh fish freezes really well, and as it’s only for a couple of days, you won’t even notice it’s been frozen. We can even vacuum pack it for you to keep the quality at its absolute best.
And finally, don’t forget, we close on the 24th until 29th and 30th for New Year and then we’re closed again until Thursday 4th January.
