Nik's Fresh Fish has recently started visiting Haddenham, with a stall at Bradmoor Farm Shop operating every Thursday, between 10am and 3.30pm.
Nik sells fresh, sustainably and environmentally friendly caught Cornish and Devon fish.
Nik operates on strongly held principles: "I source my fish from a small Cornwall based wholesaler who predominantly buys from the small local fishing boats and not the large trawlers. His reasoning is simple, it's the large trawlers working hand in hand with supermarkets, that have ruined the UK fishing industry. As both are just too large to "do" fresh fish properly."
"There is a huge difference between ultra fresh fish such as mine and supermarket fish, but as all my fish is wasted after a few days to be replaced with a new supply, there is a premium on the price to help cover the wastage factor."
"Do you think supermarkets throw out there fish every few days and replace with fresh? Of course they don't! This is why it's so cheap and inferior compared to the fresh fish we bring to Haddenham. So. if it's quality you're looking for then come and visit me on Thursdays at Bradmoor Farm."
Nik's Fresh Fish primarily offer wet fish. Although Nik does not sell shellfish, he does stock dressed crabs and occasionally mussels, and fantastic individually frozen Scottish sourced prawns can be ordered.
Nik will happily take orders and deliver locally if the order is in over £25.
