Squid Lover’s Box | Frozen Box | Wild caught | 3x 900g
A GREAT VALUE BOX FOR ANY SQUID LOVER
All our squid is sourced from the Patagonian sea shelf in the cold Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Argentina. This squid species is desired the world over for its flavour and richness in all-important B Vitamins. The Patagonian longfin squid are very short-lived, surviving for only a year, but this makes the population very resilient with a low vulnerability to fishing pressure.
Cleaned squid tubes and heads (3 x packs with approx. 900g each for a total of 2.7kg in your box)
Your box will arrive frozen, simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost (do not thaw under vacuum/pressure), simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly.
Patagonian Longfin Squid is marked “of least concern” by the ICUN. Our squid is sourced from the Patagonian shelf where population levels are stable, and the squid fishing industry is actively managed with two populations assessments per fishing season. Harvesting is also governed by a harvest management plan.

Crunchy and sweet flavor. Tasted fresh even though defrosted from frozen. Great to NOT have to clean them myself.
Its really fabulous! The online system is so easy. Ryan and the team are wonderful and always happy to help. The Calamari is fresh and delicious. Delivery is the very next day. We love using Green Fish!
Bought to spoil my wife on our anniversary. Stunning. Tender crispy. Only cooked 400 gms which was more than enough as our starter. Excellent value. Need o find more recipes for the balance which excited to cook.
As you open the box you'll realize the good quality and when you cook them the surprise turns into a reconfirmation. Well done Green Fish
I recently purchased the Squid Lover Box, which arrives in 3 frozen 900g packets of squid. The separate packaging is convenient. The squid is beautifully cleaned and delicious. Definitely recommended.
So convenient to have a supplier who can deliver this to my door.
I ordered a Squid Lover Box and a Live box Black Mussels. They arrived on the following morning to Paarl. My guests were surprised with the top quality and freshness. I am a very satisfied client and will order it regularly. Thank you for the good service and the immaculate quality!
The squid was divine. Solid portion
Exceeded my expectations by miles. From my panicked, 'I need it today' phone call where I was gently taken through the online purchasing process (dead eady) to delivery at my home less than 90 minutes later. I am beyond impressed and completely delighted. Oh and the squid was exceptional too.
It was nice and fresh and well packed with a variety of calamari.
Absolutely love everything about the app
We ordered before 11am and received delivery the same day. The packs are easy to thaw in some warm water and contain a good portion of of tubes and heads, probably enough in each pack for 3 to 4 Adults as a main. The calamari turned out great and we can't wait to cook the next pack. Some of the tubes contained a bit of sand but that was easily washed out before cooking.
The squid was so good. Thanks.
Excellent ,quick delivery as order placed before 11am,customed packed the order ,was excellent to cook & great quality,will order regularly
This box is amazing - even I can make calamari now. Thanks also to The Fish Wife for the tips and recipes on how to cook it. My family keep asking when I am making again.
The oysters were delicious, nice and firm and great flavour. The baby quid was incredibly soft and tender. The tuna was fresh and tasty - I didn’t bother cooking it as it was so fresh I used it in ceviche and sashimi.
