Where to buy local seafood in North Wales

by | Jun 30, 2022

A question we get asked again and again is: where can I buy seafood around Ynys Môn?’

The strong tidal currents that flow around the sandbanks of the Menai Strait bring in a steady supply of food for local fish, so we have plenty on our doorstep. As well as favourite restaurants like Dylan’s and The Lobster Pot, there are several places you can buy seafood to cook at home.

1. The Menai Seafood Company

These guys are local experts in selecting sustainable and responsibly-sourced fish. They are known for picking the best mussels and oysters from the Menai strait, and three different species of crab from the rocky coastline of Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula.

Aside from supplying to local restaurants and deli’s, they have a number of locations where you can pick up your order from their van, or their shop at Port Penrhyn.

A husband and wife team with over 30 years of experience of preparing, cooking and selecting the best quality fish (or pysgod in Welsh), Llyn Seafoods is a great place to get advice on what to buy and how to serve it.

They sell as much locally-caught fish as possible, adding to their range out of season.

5.Menai Oysters

Menai Oysters is an oyster and mussel farm right here by Halen Môn, in an outstanding area of conservation.

Strong tidal currents ebb and flow around sandbanks of the Menai Strait and bring in a steady supply of food to give the shellfish grown here a unique taste.
