A little bit about us

finefish is more than your basic fish shop – it’s a relationship to where your food comes from, a connection to the ocean and environment, and a right to enjoy high quality seafood on your dinner table that has been sustainably sourced. In a world of imported cheap seafood and mass-produced food stores, finefish strives to offer the community a refreshing alternative. We believe that everyone has the right to accurate information about seafood products. We supply local fresh Australian and New Zealand seafood – Australia has some of the best-managed fisheries in the world! We are honest, listing the provenance of all our seafood products, and we don’t sell products that have been treated with chemicals. We aim to drive positive change in our oceans and environment and support fisherman and farmers who harvest responsibly and employ sustainable practices. We have a deep respect and love for quality seafood and love to share the joys of cooking and eating fresh seafood with you.

The finefish tale

Andrew and Matthew, the owners of finefish, share a passion for fresh seafood and produce. Both professionally trained chefs, they honour quality food and have a desire to make purchasing and preparing fresh, sustainable, local seafood easy and accessible for everyone. The finefish tale began with leading Sydney seafood wholesaler, Martin’s Seafood’s, who supply award-winning restaurants such as est. Restaurant, The Bridge Room, The Bather’s Pavilion, and Restaurant Hubert. An overwhelming demand from the general public to provide the same quality seafood inspired Andrew to open finefish in 2007 – a venue where the public could enjoy quality Australian fresh seafood, make informed seafood choices and support the fishermen and communities that promote sustainable practices.
