Wild Harbour Fish are recruiting!

Hayle based Wild Harbour Fish Company family business was established in 2011 by Saul and Abi Astrinsky.  Saul had been a commercial hand line fisherman for over 25 years and wanted to showcase his sustainably caught Cornish fish.

In 2011 he and Abi decided to work more closely with a small group of fishermen and develop strict quality and freshness protocols in order to maintain the exceptional standard of the fish they caught. Soon after, they then went to work on marketing these fantastic fish and by supplying to a handful of local restaurants. Move forward a few years and they are now selling to some of the best restaurants and hotels both locally and nationwide, including many with Michelin stars to their name.

Line caught are just some of the superb fish caught and supplied for Wild Harbour Fish.
In their desire to ensure the local fleet earned a fair price across the season for their fish Wild Harbour bucked the trend and offered their fishermen a ‘set price’ right across the season.

With the demands of the business ashore growing Saul finally sold his boat in March 2014 after a (tearful!) goodbye to concentrate on making Wild Harbour perform even better. Now, in 2017, for the many fishermen who land their fish direct, Wild Harbour is committed to paying them a fair price for their a top-quality product. So not only do they have access to the best quality fish but their fishermen are receiving a consistently better price throughout the year. Many of our fishermen are also members of the Southwest Handline Fishermen’s Association and the Responsible Fishing Scheme.

2017 has been an amazing year so far for us and with plans to create new product ranges which will allow chefs to customise and tailor products to their individual needs, we think 2018 is going to be even better!

So, from today, Wild Harbour Fish are now looking to expand the business further and are looking to fill two new Hayle-based positions:
