Kingklip Fillets | Fresh Box | Wild caught
A DINING OUT CLASSIC, NOW ON YOUR TABLE
Our Kingklip is hand selected by our team from fishing boats returning to Cape Town harbour from their fishing grounds in the cold, deep Atlantic waters off Cape Point. During the 1980’s Kingklip became so prized for its mild, slightly sweet flavour, that overfishing severely depleted the population. However, a shift to more sustainable fishing practises has led to the species recovering in recent years. Kingklip is usually served pan-fried or grilled.
2 x Kingklip Fillets (Approx. 850g - 1100g per box) Serves 4.
Your box will arrive fresh, simply store in your fridge and use at your leisure (up to 5 days). For home freezing, freeze on the day of arrival, and use within 3 months.
All our Kingklip is harvested from hake demersal longlines by local Cape Town fishermen. These fishermen are actually targeting hake and catch Kingklip as bycatch on their lines. Not only does this support the local fishing industry, but also represents the least possible impact on Kingklip populations and the ecology of the seabed.

The fish is excellent. However, is there a more eco-friendly way to transport it? The Styrofoam boxes cannot be returned and they cannot be re-cycled...

Order arrived 2 hours after it was placed. Fish was fresh and delicious and flavourful. Very grateful to have access to such fresh fish, knowing that it has been caught sustainably and that I am supporting local fishermen.
It is always so amusing to listen to my family devour GreenFish Kingklip. Every swallow is punctuated with a "MMMMM". Thanks for the awesome fish!
My first order and my experience were awesome! I've received my fish the very same day. It was fresh and packed very well! I'm more than satisfied; thank you.
Excellent quality, taste and texture were excellent. Delivery is on time every time. Would like the option of smaller portions if requested eg. cut 1kg fillet into 4 250g pieces, when placing the order
