March 2020 saw the Coronavirus shut down all restaurants in the UK and most of Europe, leaving our local fishermen with no trade and the population in lockdown.
BH Fish was founded as a way to support our fishermen and to encourage the local community to cook freshly caught Lobster, Crab, Sea Bass, Sole, Brill and much more at home.
All our fish is wild caught in Poole Bay and Poole Harbour using sustainable, low impact fishing methods.
Our Lobster & Crab are caught in out in Poole Bay and our Oysters, Cockles & Clams from inside the harbour.
Each day our fishermen will return to Poole Quay with their daily catch, which will then be uploaded to our website, Facebook and Instagram pages.
Go to 'Catch of the Day' at the top right of this page to see today's offerings and then order fresh fish and shellfish to be delivered straight to your door.
Deliveries are made Monday to Saturday, between 2pm & 6pm and collection can be made 7 days a week from The Crown Hotel, 23 Market Street, BH15 1NB.
Under the current social distancing measures, our delivery drivers will telephone you on arrival and then simply leave your order on the door step.
To continue the theme of local businesses coming together in these times of uncertainty, The Crown Hotel in Poole are also offering to fillet fish and pre-cook lobsters & crabs prior to delivery.
They have also started to upload easy to follow recipes to our website, so that you can re-create restaurant quality dishes in your own kitchen.
A big part of our mission is to help the local community fall in love with cooking and preparing local produce at home, this is why we have set up a Community Forum on our site so that you can all swap recipe ideas, hints and tips.
We have filleting knives, fishbone tweezers, shellfish crackers, etc available to purchase from our website too and will soon be adding ‘how to’ demonstration videos, teaching you how prepare and cook your freshly caught seafood, straight from Poole Quay.
To accompany your local seafood, we are also offering Dorset wines, produced here in the county by our friends at English Oak and Furleigh Estate.
"The UK will recover from this pandemic, if we all work together and try and make isolation that little bit more bearable".
