When most of us are still in bed, Rob Wing is excitedly trawling the early morning fish auction in search of the very best fresh seafood.
The Cornish Coast is renowned for fantastic quality fresh fish and seafood. One of the best online fish merchants, that we have found is The Cornish Fishmonger, who can truly deliver from Trawler to your door in 24 hours – amazing!
Cornish born and bred Rob Wing, started out as a Chef before owning fishing trawlers himself. Rob’s core business is supplying UK restaurants including many Michelin starred venues and this is not surprising given the sheer variety and excellence of the fish and seafood constantly in and out of The Cornish Fishmonger HQ.
We love that MasterChef Gift Card customers can enjoy the same fabulous fish & seafood as the nation’s top restaurants. In fact Rob whispers that since his online retail customers tend to order in the evening and morning before the restaurants, they are actually served first!
Sonia and Rob assist Tom covering the 3 major quayside Cornish fish auctions of Newlyn, Plymouth and Brixham. A 35 year working relationship with key fishermen ensure that they buy the best fish available at the best price for their customers. Rob and his team are port side at 5.30am daily, back to HQ by 12 noon and can have your fish boxed up and with the courier by 2pm – so if it is fresh Cornish Fish & seafood you want – look no further – this really is Trawler to Table!
We also think Rob Wing is a bit of a legend within our Artisan Network! His work as Chairman of the Harbour Commission of Newlyn, the most valuable port in England, and for the charity National Lobster Hatchery Board is testament to Rob’s pride in the industry and commitment to keeping it sustainable.
After almost 4 decades, he is clearly still excited about walking into the fish auction, when most of us are still in bed, and viewing the sea of different coloured fish in all shapes and sizes.
It is this passion that brings us some of the best Cornish fresh fish & seafood in the UK.
