7 Reasons why Greenfish might become your favourite fish supplier in Cape Town

Ryan Nienaber

Looking for your fish supplier in Cape Town? Here are seven reasons why we might be just the right fit for you.

1. We're family run

 Our family run operation is experienced in all facets of the trade, both on and off the water. We have a hands-on approach and are in tune with the ocean and the best fresh fish in Cape Town. 

2. We handle our fish from start to finish

 The majority of the fish we receive is handled from start to finish by our skilled staff members. We process and cut each order by hand, giving each fresh fish the care and attention it deserves.

3. We offer a wide range of products

 With our signature range of fresh hand-line caught fish and pole caught fresh tuna, we give you access to Cape Town’s finest seafood. Our fresh line fish is delivered straight from our boats to your door.  Our online seafood deli is updated daily as the catches land in the harbour, ensuring your orders are always fresh and based on seasonal supply.

Fresh catches include :

  • Yellowfin Tuna
  • Yellowtail
  • Red Roman
  • Red Stumpnose
  • Silver fish (carpenter fish)
  • Black Bream (hottentot)
  • Swordfish
  • Angel Fish
  • Monk Fish (Monk tails)
  • Cape Salmon (geelbek)
  • Deep Water Cape Hake
  • Kingklip
  • Kob (kabeljou/ cob)
  • Organic Norwegian Salmon

4. We offer products you won't find anywhere else

 We are also very proud to be the first supplier to offer organic salmon in Cape Town. 

 We offer a specialty shellfish section that covers you from scallops, clams, mussels, langoustines, crayfish, lobsters and even some of the best prawns in Cape Town.

5. We support local communities and the environment

     For our live and aquaculture range we have partnered with farms up the west coast and in Hermanus and Gaansbaai.  Here we work with farms that support the communities surrounding them.  Live west coast oysters and mussels are picked twice a week and we have special live tanks onsite to store them, ensuring freshness.  We are proud to be the first supplier to reintroduce live abalone back to the public, with our cultivated abalone “perlemoen” from Hermanus after a very long absence from the home dining table.

    While our salmon is indeed flown in weekly from Norway, we have a carbon offset programme where we plant a tree around the coastal fishing community of Gaansbaai for every 10 salmon boxes we sell.

    6. Other customers love our frozen range, too

     Frozen fish in Cape Town is something you need to keep your eye on and trust your fish supplier with. Not all frozen products are equal. Many suppliers import cheaper alternatives that are similar to our local product and sell them under the same name.  Our wild caught local yellowtail is often compared price wise against the imported frozen farmed yellowtail which sells at a fraction of the price.  The same could be said for kingklip and the imported cousin Ling from New Zealand.

    Don't take our word for it though, check out some of the reviews for our frozen range.

    7. We're lightening fast

    We offer same-day deliveries everyday of the week, enabling you to get the freshest fish possible. From sea to plate in under 24h.
