Our History

Darren started fishing as a boy with his dad, and at 16 years old he started working on Plymouth’s fish quay as a filleter and quay hand. Through the years, he gained huge experience working alongside people in the fishing industry and honed his knife skills to perfection. Whilst Darren was working on Plymouth Fish Quay, he met Emma.

Emma had started her career in the fishing industry at a very young age, she boasts the accolade of becoming the first UK female under 10-meter trawler skipper. She found her land legs again when she and Darren met and they decided to bring their experience and passion for seafood together and started at Catch of the Day Kingsbridge in 2010. This husband-and-wife team work in perfect harmony to provide all of their customers with the best quality and service.
