ChalkStream® rainbow trout
ChalkStream® has the only rainbow trout farms on the Test and Itchen Rivers in Hampshire. Similar to terroir in wine, it's the pure chalkstream water that gives these fish their unique fresh, clean taste. ChalkStream® are recognised for producing to the highest standards of welfare, food safety and environmental and ecological care.
Fresh trout is one of the richest sources of long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids: essential for a healthy heart and brain function.
This beautiful rainbow trout is supplied as two whole side fillets: boned, scaled and ready to cook. Serving the whole fish, it's ideal as your Christmas lunch or New Year's Eve centrepiece, or as a dinner-party to impress friends and family. Weighing around 1.5kg* (each side fillet 750g*) this trout will serve around 8 people.
If you prefer prepared fillet portions, then please choose the ChalkStream® rainbow trout fillets, which come prepared as fillet portions which are ready to cook or freeze.
Our fish is a world away from what you will find in the supermarket:
Fresh means fresh
We deliver high-quality fresh fish to your door either the day it's caught (for locally-landed Sussex fish) or within 1-2 days if it's from elsewhere in the UK. Unlike a lot of supermarket fish, ours has never been previously frozen, so you're guaranteed that fresh means fresh.
Seasonal & UK-sourced
We select fresh fish in season from within the UK - as much as possible comes from our local Sussex waters. This means our fish has fewer food miles than non-UK fish so it reaches you fresher, has a lower environmental impact and isn't frozen on its journey to you.
The quality of ChalkStream® rainbow trout is such that it is designated sashimi-grade and does not require freezing before eating raw.
Plastic-free sustainable packaging
We use plant-based, compostable packaging for our fresh fish paper wrapping, labels and bags. You can freeze your fresh fish in the paper it arrives in and, when you have finished with it, add it to your food waste bin, compost bin or garden compost and it will break down into organic material in a matter of weeks.
We deliver free every Friday and Saturday - we have a range of pre-bookable time-slots for your postcode.
