Products sold by Greenfish
Same-day home delivery of premium quality, locally and sustainably sourced cape fish. The chefs' secret - until now. How it works:
1. We head out to sea
We fish out of Cape Town and surrounding areas. As we cannot control the weather and seasonal constraints of fish movements, our fresh boxes will not always be available. Don't worry, we have a range of other boxes for those bad-weather days.
2. You select your fish box
Orders placed by 11am will reach you the same day.
3. We deliver to your doorstep
One of our team members will deliver your order to you. During the lockdown they will knock on your door then step backwards but make sure that you get your box.
4. Smile, cook & enjoy!
At A Glance
- Catch of the day
Greenfish aim to deliver their catches to your door within 24 hours of landing on the deck: you get the catch of the day, on the day.
- Community Focus
Co-founder Ryan grew up catching and selling fish to pay for his pocket money and later his education. Having been given a chance by the fishers, he aims to give back to the community through community engagement projects, jobs, and education. It's a hand up, not a handout.

- First Class Fish
Greenfish recognise that not all fish are equal. They treat their catches with the best quality care they can, including wrapping their fish in muslin cloth and catching their fish on a matras!
- Brotherly love
Growing up as artisanal handline and tuna pole fishers we have close ties to the ocean. Brothers Ryan and Andrew have more than 60 years' worth of combined fishing under their belt. We simply love all things FISH!
Growing up on the sea, from handline fishing to tuna pole, my love for fish has turned into the business we run today. GreenFish evolved to meet the growing demand for my export quality fish to the local market. As a commercial fisher myself, I use my knowledge and experience in maximising fish quality to bring my customers the very best quality products. On top of that, I know how important the protection of our ocean resources is, and so GreenFish prioritises sourcing from one-by-one fisheries - we share many of the same values as IPNLF, which is why we have joined its international network.
