The Scottish Catalogue of Seafood

Choosing fish fresh when it’s in season is the most responsible buying decision you can make. And one of the easiest ways of doing this is to buy through John Vallance – because we have access to such a huge variety of seafood suppliers, you only need make a single phone call to source exactly what you’re looking for. Asking us what’s plentiful at the moment, or what’s particularly good, means you can run a varied specials board that celebrates the superb quality and flavour of the best our coastal waters can offer – and choose from over 50 varieties of fish and seafood all in prime condition.

All our seafood comes from reliable, ethical and sustainable sources, and is carefully logged on receipt to ensure full traceability. We know exactly where your purchase came from, whether it’s white fish or lobster from a fleet fishing the inshore waters of the west coast, mackerel from boats fishing out of the east coast harbour towns, salmon from an accredited sea loch farm, or hand-picked scallops collected by certificated divers.
