Monkfish

Lophius Pescatorius

This highly unusual creature is definitely considered a deep sea predator. With a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth, and a flexible protuberance on its head that attracts prey, it’s perfectly adapted to hunting at the darkest, deepest depths of the ocean.

With seven different species in total, Monkfish are a breed of Anglerfish that can be found in the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Typically, they weigh around 50lbs and are between 2-4 feet in length.When skinned and filleted, the Monkfish’s mild taste and firm texture is often compared to the meaty tail of a Rock Lobster. Interestingly, the liver of a Monkfish is a delicacy in some cultures!

Values which drive us


People

Many of our team have been in the industry since they were old enough to hold a filleting knife. Our collective experience of over 200 years in the fish & seafood industry has allowed us to establish relationships with major suppliers, which means we’re able to source the highest quality produce available for our customers all year round. From the production team, to our drivers, to the skippers and crews who go out daily and catch our fish for market, it’s the passion, skill and knowledge of our people that make My Fish Company the go-to supplier for many chefs throughout the North West.
