Scotland’s finest seafood delivered to your door
Skipper’s Choice brings you only the finest Scottish seafood — fresh, seasonal, sustainable, and delivered from our shores to your door in 24 hours, from dispatch.
Why not indulge your senses with a Skipper’s Choice fresh Scottish seafood selection? There's a mouth-watering mix in every fish box — perfect for all your favourite recipes and for trying out some of ours! Either way, you can be confident you're getting the very best, harvested by some of Scotland's most experienced and knowledgeable fishermen.
There’s nothing like a Skipper’s Choice fish box — for freshness, quality, provenance, and seasonal variety. You choose your size of box, we select the best of the day’s catch for you, we carefully hand fillet, skin, and vacuum pack your fish, then we chill, insulate and box it up before dispatching it so that it arrives ready for you to cook the next day. Of course, all Skipper’s Choice selections can also be frozen and enjoyed later, offering you maximum flexibility with every delivery.
Only the highest quality fish selected by trawlerman Jimmy Buchan and his team from that day’s Peterhead catch makes its way into your Skipper’s Choice fish box. He knows and understands the local fish market better than anyone in the business, and his partnerships with the port’s top skippers and processors ensure you always get the very best in seasonal, responsibly sourced seafood.
At the helm of Skipper’s Choice is Jimmy Buchan, owner of the Peterhead-registered trawler Amity II and star of the BBC’s BAFTA award-winning Trawlermen TV series. Amity II was built in 1989 in Denmark, and Jimmy bought her in 1991. In 2012, she had a £750,000 rebuild to make her more efficient and environmentally friendly, safer and more comfortable. She has a large onboard fishroom for keeping her catch of langoustine and prime fish in perfect condition for your Skipper’s Choice box.
Skipper’s Choice is the brainchild of skipper Jimmy Buchan — he’s on the left, seen here with the crew of his trawler, Amity II. Jimmy has spent more than 40 years fishing Scotland’s abundant waters out of his home port of Peterhead on the Aberdeenshire coast and there’s not much he and his team don’t know about seafood! He’s also a board member of the Scottish Fishermen’s Organisation, has a business management qualification, and is a long-time supporter of the Fishermen’s Mission.
Selecting your quality fish is Jimmy Buchan, whose passion for sharing Scotland’s abundant catch is driven by 40 years working the waters off his native Peterhead as a North Sea trawler skipper.
