Striped Marlin are pelagic migratory species that are caught by a number of different countries. It is currently unassessed on the SASSI list but we know its population to be decreasing. There are strict regulations on who may catch these fish using the longline fishing method. All our Marlin is sourced from a small fleet of local owned and operated licensed fishing vessels allowed to bring in this type of catch.

This fish was a revelation. I did it with a Honey and Soy glaze and the flavour was amazing. Somewhere between Tuna and maybe Halibut - was delicious and will order again if stock is available.
Such a great company and such great service. The fish was fresh and delicious!! Haven’t tried this fish before, but definitely will try it again. Thanks so much.
Thank you for always meeting my expectations. I have acquired so many new customers for you, but well deserved. Keep up the impressive service and quality.
My experience with Greenfish has been absolutely phenomenal! I placed an order around 9:30am and received it before 2PM on the same day. Impeccable service aside, the fish itself was a sight to behold, any fresher and it would have still been swimming in the sea. The quality of the fish itself was amazing and was absolutely delicious. I would not hesitate in making future purchases from Greenfish.
Ordered at 9:30 am delivered before 3. So fresh, seared off in a pan with salt, pepper and some fine South African extra ****** olive oil and paired with boiled new potatoes and a classic beurre blanc. Wednesday night dinners done properly!
