The Dorset Catch

The clear waters of the Dorset coast are home to Britain's finest seafood and shellfish. The daily catch lands fresh Portland crab and lobster, magnificent line-caught sea bass in season, mackerel, pollack, sole and plaice. Wonderful oysters, mussels and hand-dived razor clams and scallops. But with over 40 local species, from John Dory to Billy Winters, the truth is we never know quite what the tide will bring in.

Expert Fishmongers

Behind the counters you'll find Steve Abbott and Tim Withers, both highly skilled, experienced fishmongers who've worked with fish all their lives. There's craft and artistry in everything they do, whether it's preparing your favourites or helping to select something different for a special occasion. Ask them a question or two; they'll be delighted to offer advice on cooking and enjoying the day's catch.

The Old Fish Market

Weymouth's historic fish market has been a harbourside landmark for over 150 years. Constructed in 1855, by renowned British architect Thomas Talbot Bury, it was built to provide a permanent home for the town's twice-weekly market.

Over the decades, it hasn't always played host to its original purpose, housing storage for the harbour and sadly falling into disrepair. But more recently, Weyfish has restored this Grade II listed building to the role it was intended for, the commercial heart of the local fishing industry.

The Weymouth Fleet

The fishing industry has been central to Weymouth's economy and culture for generations. Today, the majority of the local fleet are day boats, fishing the inshore waters with lines, nets and pots, the most sustainable of fishing methods, producing little by-catch or discards. Most boats are owner-operated, single handed, landing their catch daily on Custom House Quay.

We don't just support the local fleet, we're a part of it, fishing for bass, crab, lobster and inshore flat fish. The Weyfish Boat Company aims to run modern, well-equipped vessels, guaranteeing more days at sea to ensure a better livelihood for their crews.

Wholesale

We're pleased to work with many local restaurants and cafés, as well as some further afield, who share our passion for the highest quality, sustainably-caught Dorset seafood. Orders are taken and collected daily to bring the freshest produce from the boats to the plate, meaning not just more memorable meals for diners, but important investment in the Weymouth fishing community.

Processing

Weyfish has the facility to store up to three tons of live crab and 500kg of lobster in a specially filtered, temperature-controlled environment, with regular independent inspection. The catch is cooked and processed direct from live storage, never frozen. We hand-pick our crab the old-fashioned way on a daily basis, ensuring a far superior product to any modern mechanised operation.

Protecting the Environment

As well as supporting the most sustainable methods of inshore fishing, we're committed to reducing our carbon footprint to help protect the local environment and sustain our planet.

With part-funding from Low Carbon Dorset as part of the European Regional Development Fund, we installed an air source heat pump with underfloor heating, which, along with a purpose-built veranda that incorporates 8kW of solar energy, helps us save over 10 tonnes of CO2 every year. We've also installed solar panels to power our processing unit and our fully electric delivery vehicle is driven by sustainable solar and hydro energy.

Hatch on the Harbour

Right next door to Weyfish, Hatch on the Harbour is our deliciously laid back way to enjoy fresh, locally caught seafood, straight off the boats. At Hatch, we serve fresh, honest food from a seasonal menu that’s all about quality local ingredients, taste and flavour. #seafoodstreetfood that’s ready to take away or eat with us on the harbourside.
