ABOUT US

The Fresh Fish Place
We proudly supply customers with the best selection of fresh, smoked, frozen fish, shellfish, and marinades offering more than 60+ choices. Our fresh fish are as fresh as it gets, going from boat to plate within 24 hours.

We are passionate about helping Scotland become healthier and want to contribute to this by supplying high quality seafood which helps customers meet the NHS suggested dietary requirement of eating a minimum of two portions of fish a week.

We appreciate that some may not know where to start when cooking fish, so part of our mission is to provide easy options to make a fish dish an easy option for you and your family! We provide meal suggestions and recipes on our fishy ideas page.

OUR STORY

John & Hazel Stephen are not new to the fish fishing industry! Originally from Peterhead, a fishing town in the Northeast of Scotland, both their grandfathers and fathers were fishermen. John himself, went to sea for 15 years and was the skipper of his own trawler for 5 years. The work of a fisherman and his wife is never done, and the couple have brought this work ethic into The Fresh Fish Place.

John & Hazel took over the Grangemouth Fish Mongers, businesses which had been in the Smith family since 1952. With none of the Smith family looking to take over the shop John and Hazel stepped in. With years of experience running their own business they have put the lessons they have learnt into practice.

After taking a few months to get their feet under the table, John & Hazel decided to re name the Fish Mongers: The Fresh Fish Place. There was great debate within the family whether we should have had a play on words and called it Plaice, but Place won as John thought Plaice would be too fancy for him. The couple started to introduce new products and began taking in stock from John’s cousins fish yard in Peterhead.

Just over a year into their fish monger journey they opened a second shop in Falkirk which has since relocate to Grahams Road. Two months later they opened a shop in Hopetoun St in Bathgate. Soon after one in Dunfermline, Stirling, and Kinross. As well as opening new locations The Fresh Fish Place have launched a click and collect service with a local delivery option available – view our range here.
