Wild sea bass (line-caught)
This wild line-caught sea bass is a world away from its farmed cousin. One of the finest fish available around our coastlines and as such is highly-prized. A very special treat for a special occasion.
With juicy, succulent white flesh, it's fantastic pan-fried to provide delicious crispy skin (a great source of nutrients) and can also be oven-roasted, steamed, grilled and barbecued - so versatile is sea bass, it can also be used for carpaccio and ceviche.
We can supply wild sea bass in a range of sizes to suit the number of people you're serving - it is supplied as a whole fish to cook on the bone. We can also supply this as a filleted fish.
If you would like your fish filleted, please add a note where it says "Any special requirements?" when viewing your basket before you checkout).
Here's a quick guide to buying:
Small: 1.5-2kg = 2-4 people
Medium: 2.5-3kg = 4-6 people
Large: 3.5-4kg = 6-8 people
The weights above are for whole fish BEFORE gutting or filleting.
If you would like your fish supplied whole (head and tail on, scaled, gutted & cleaned to cook on the bone), the weight of the fish will be around 75-80% of the starting weight above:
i.e. a gutted 1.5kg fish will arrive weighing 1.1-1.2kg
i.e. a gutted 3.5kg fish will arrive weighing 2.6-2.7kg
If you would like your fish supplied as two boneless side fillets, the weight of the fish will be around 40%-50% of the starting weight above:
i.e. a 1.5kg fish should provide around 600-750g of boneless fillet meat
i.e. a 3.5kg fish should provide around 1,400-1,750g of boneless fillets
Weights are approximate - fish size varies at different times of the year
