Our story

Direct Seafoods was born in Colchester almost 40 years ago! We are passionate fish experts who have been serving wonderful seafood to fantastic chefs since 1984!

Along with taking your fish orders each day, our experience and knowledgeable team are able to offer customers advice on menu planning, fish and seafood availability, notify you of the days landings and recommend daily specials.

Our buyers get up early each day to bid on the daily landings from the local fish markets and grab the best fish available such as fish from Lowestoft and local oysters from Maldon. With great links via our sister seafood businesses around England and Scotland, we are able to source any seafood not landing in to local ports, such as Brixham, Plymouth, and Peterhead, as well as overseas where required, to cover all customer requirements. You can learn more about our fishermen and the areas we source from.

We are proud to supply many top chefs and establishments from restaurants, bars and hotels to colleges and sports stadiums.

We deliver each day to chefs in the East and South East of England and the surrounding regions. You can see our full delivery area here.
