We provide the Highest Quality, Most Sustainable Selection of Fresh Fish & Shellfish.
Supplied directly from a small inshore fleet of day boats, operating from Looe & surrounding harbours.
Based in the heart of Looe Harbour, Cornish FishCo is a small, family run business owned by husband and wife team Sam and Laura Chapman. Fishing lies within the family, with both of Sam’s uncles being fisherman. One of Sam’s uncles still fishes today, alongside his cousins, often catching the fish you might find as part of your order.
At the age of 18, Sam started working on the fish quay as a harbour assistant, helping the boats land their catches. During this time Sam was drawn to the hustle and bustle of the busy fish quay, and began working for a local fish merchant, where he learnt the trade. Sam quickly gained a passion for buying and selling some of the UK’s finest fish, caught by small day boats, all of which are owned by local families. Fish landed in Looe is renowned all over the
country, after one taste we’re sure you’ll understand it’s reputation.
In 2016, Sam and Laura took the opportunity to take over Nippers Shellfish, which then turned into the Cornish FishCo, a business with a great reputation for producing Cornwall’s finest crab meat. Noticing an opportunity to expand they quickly started supplying Day Boat Cornish Fish to a range of restaurants.
Day Boats land their catch after a hard, long day at sea, typically between 6-11pm depending on the Tides.
We arrive to work at 5am, where we grade the catch, and carefully select the best fish for our orders.
Our expert filleters get to work preparing your fish, it is then Vacuum Packed, ensuring your fish stays as fresh as the day it was caught.
We pack your order, where it is collected by DPD, just 12-16 hours after it has been caught!
Your parcel arrives at your doorstep the next day, often under 36 hours old!
Here at the Cornish Fish Co. we are committed to supporting the most sustainable fishing methods, which is why we depend on our local inshore fishing fleet to supply us with the highest quality products.
Over the years Looe has earned itself an impeccable reputation for the fish landed in this small port, and we strive to maintain this.
We provide only the best standards of locally sourced seafood.
