About


Ready Fish Box is a new initiative which started in May 2020, as a result of the collapse in fish prices through the impact of Covid19 on the supply chain. The aim is to make local day boat Brixham fish available to the local customers, the community, hotels, restaurants and fish buyers either direct from us or alternatively via Pesky Fish, an online fish auction, who are based in Galmpton, South Devon. We specialises in quality, fresh, sustainably caught premium day boat fish landed in Brixham, sold directly to consumers and also through the online auction route.

MFV Two Brothers BM 516, an inshore fishing boat, has been fishing from Brixham for over 15 years and is owned and run as our local family business, skippered by the owner Darren Ready, who has been fishing since he was 14 years of age, and still going strong over 35 years later.

MFV Resolute BM 33 was added to the Ready fishing business more recently in 2016 and is managed and skippered by Darren Passmore, a local boy who lives in Brixham with his wife Sophie and two young children.

The recent joining of Daniel Ready, aged 18, to the business enables father and son to work alongside each other and take fishing in to the future and in to the next generation.

Please feel free to contact us via telephone or email before choosing a fish box.     Each box varies day to day, depending on what fish is available immediately before creating the box.       We are finding that families with children are particularly enjoying the meatier no bone boxes, and often receive calls from customers asking not to include some specific fish.   We are happy to adapt the box where we can, subject to availability of the fish to produce the fish box.
