We are a long-established high-street fishmongers, boasting a huge selection of quality ethically sourced fresh fish and seafood on our counter in our West Sussex store for over 30 years.

Our owner, Sebastian Candelon, took over the business in 2007 and has been awarded the prestigious honour of 'Master Fishmonger' recognising his expertise and dedication within the industry.  

Our shop team take pride in creating an eye-catching display on the counter every day, using a selection of the very best seasonal, responsibly-sourced fish and seafood. Hand cut portions are artfully nestled on ice with fresh herbs and cut lemons, alongside an impressive selection of fresh whole fish and shellfish.

All of our produce is clearly labelled with information about how and where
each fish is caught, for complete transparency from sea to serve.
Our live shellfish tank is home to the finest pot-caught lobster and crab caught off the coast of Newhaven, which we can ‘cook and crack’ in store, ready for you to take home and tuck into.

We also offer a selection of award-winning, homemade smoked fish pates, local cheeses, artisan flavoured butters, local bread, biodynamic eggs, gourmet sauces and other speciality foods such as caviar.

We’re very proud that our commitment to offering the very best, local and sustainable seafood has been recognised by some of the country’s most prestigious award schemes.

The Fresh Fish Shop has been named as a finalist in the 2020 Sussex Food & Drink Awards (in the ‘Shop of the Year’ category) and as a finalist in the Fishmonger category of the Farm Shop & Deli Awards 2020.

You can rest assured we are committed to only sourcing from sustainable fish stocks and using low environmental impact packaging. Very soon all of our packaging will be 100% biodegradable or widely recyclable.
