TODAY'S FRESH DAY BOAT LANDINGS
Fresh & Wild Cornish Red Gurnard
The most common variations are Red and Grey Gurnards, which are very similar in shape and taste, it’s just the skin colours that change. A sustainable star with a stunning texture and flavour, it once just had a supporting role in stews but has now stepped boldly into the culinary limelight.
Cornish ‘Line Caught’ Gilthead Bream
Cornish Gilt head Bream is a favourite here at Wild Harbour, with its mild and sweet flavour, as well as a medium to soft flesh texture that produces small flakes of fish. Sea Bream and Sea Bass are two species that could be used in place of Gilt Head Bream.
Cornish ‘Line Caught’ Grey Mullet
Sustainable line caught Cornish Grey mullet has an oval, elongated silver-grey body, like a bigger and slightly more elegant herring. It often has dark, horizontal lines and has a distinctive, almost earthy flavour. Once it has been cooked, it is firm and quite similar to cod.
Cornish ‘Line Caught’ Haddock
Our superior Haddock is locally line caught, the most sustainable methods of fishing, sourcing the freshest high quality Haddock available in Cornwall. The flesh is not quite as white as cod, or as flaky, which is what makes haddock the best whitefish for smoking.
Fresh & Wild Cornish Hake
Cornish Hake is a large fish possessing white flesh that when cooked is mild in flavour and flaky in texture, hake is another member of the cod family. The flesh is quite soft, but firms up on cooking and is becoming a popular choice for restaurants.
Fresh & Wild Cornish Herring
Although several species of small, oily fish may properly be called herrings, by far the most abundant available in Cornwall is the Atlantic herring, a fish that has been an essential and sustaining food source for many thousands of years.
Fresh & Wild Cornish John Dory
John Dory is found in the Atlantic as well as cooler parts of the ocean, most commonly landed in Cornwall during the summer months. By comparison, Dover Sole, Bass, Grouper, Snapper, Emperor, and Halibut are all similar fish.
Fresh & Wild Cornish Ling
Ling is a member of the cod family. It is long and slender, with a mottled olive and brown colour. The flanks are lighter with brownish blotches and the belly is white. It has delicious white flesh and is excellent in a range of dishes.
Fresh & Wild Cornish Monk
Monkfish has a unique look with its flattened head, tapering body and speckled-brown, shiny skin and can be very large. These high-quality Cornish Monkfish Fillets have a firm, meaty texture with light colour.
Cornish ‘Line Caught’ Pollock
Our pacific Pollock is sourced on the west coast by smaller fishing boats. Pollock is a very affordable fish that has a medium texture and a mild flavour. It can be a great sustainable alternative to Cod.
Fresh & Wild Cornish Red Mullet
Cornish wild caught Red Mullet is a stunning pink fish that has a fine and delicate flavour. It’s classified as a round white fish, however has a rich sweetness that you normally only find in shellfish.
Cornish ‘Line Caught’ Seabass
‘The chef’s choice’, over the years we have become known for our wild sea bass that is of incredible size. These beauties are caught by hook and line in Cornwall by day boat fisherman.
Sustainable Cornish Whitebait
The whitebait concept – very small fish cooked and eaten whole including head, fins, bones and innards – is recognised all over the world but is applied to different species reflecting what is or was available locally such as Sprats or Herring.
Sustainable Cornish Whiting
Whiting has delicate white flesh and is best used when very fresh. Sold whole and filleted, fresh or frozen. Also dried, salted and smoked. Whiting is an underappreciated fish that, amongst many other uses, makes a great alternative to cod.
Sustainable Cornish Ballan Wrasse
A colourful fish popular with divers and snorkellers. This is not traditionally caught by Cornish fishermen, but in recent years its commercial value is increasing, and this species is now being sold to Japanese restaurants where it is prized as sashimi.
Sustainable Cornish Whole Coley
Cornish Coley is a superb alternative to Cod, Haddock and Hake. Our Coley is wild-caught by local fisherman in Cornwall, landing fresh daily and shipped the same day to restaurants nationwide.
Cornish ‘Line Caught’ Whole Bonito
Our Cornish Bonito white tuna are individually line caught with live bait or fly during the coastal fishing season by local fisherman. This age-old technique of selective fishing respects the environment and protects marine reserves.
