Our History: the start of a convenient and innovative way to eat fish

While fishing off the Easter Ross coast our MD, Magnus Houston, became frustrated that much of his catch was bought up and sent to the European markets.

So in 2011, backed by the Prince's Trust, he set up Coast & Glen in Inverness, a wholesale business that supplied local restaurant and hotels with fish and seafood landed by local fishermen.

While that was successful, it soon became apparent that there was also demand from individual consumers for high-quality produce, caught locally and sustainably, and governed by the season, rather than the fish which is sold through the supertrawler-supermarket route, which may be cheaper...but tastes cheaper.

And so Fishbox was born, offering a convenient, nutritious and fun way to eat more fish and seafood.
