***Jim's on the water and we're seeing lots of fabulous rod & line caught Selsey Bass this week*** 19th July - 22th July prices... for orders later in the month, prices may vary but we will inform you before we prepare your order if they increase

Wild Bass are in season from 1st April until 30th January each year. These stunning fish are prized by chefs and food lovers around the world. Our fish are always over the kilo, and can go up to around 5kg in weight. Throughout the summer, Jim Hackett lands his catch directly to us from Selsey, but we also buy some off Newlyn and the South Coast<br><br>

If your preferred size isn't showing on the website, we may still be getting a supply of larger fish, but availability may be variable. Send us an email and we can advise on whether we're seeing many 'whoppers' and we can input your order manually

Whole roasted bass make a show stopping centrepiece for any special occasion, simply stuffed with herbs, drizzled with oil and roasted in a hot oven, they look amazing brought straight to the table. Or, if you prefer your fish filleted, they can be pan-fried giving a crispy skin and luscious, meaty flakes

One fish of around 1kg is perfect for 2 people. Allow around 4-500g of whole fish per person - remember you will lose roughly 50% of the weight of the whole fish if you have it filleted.
