Did you know?

All black sea bream are born female. Then, when they reach about 30cm in size, they change into males, meaning that all fish over 40cm are actually male.

Wild black sea bream, also known as Porgy, isn’t eaten that much in the UK, even though it’s absolutely delicious, so bream is usually landed in relatively small quantities. But those in the know prize them for their firm white flesh and delicious, sweet flavour, not unlike sea bass.

Ranging in size from 300g to 1kg, a whole black bream makes a perfect meal from one up to three people. Our black bream come scaled & gutted, or if you prefer we can fillet them. Please be aware that the filleted weight will be approximately 40% of the whole fish weight.

FLAVOUR: Medium | TEXTURE: Medium | ALLERGENS: Contains Fish

Black bream are abundant in our local Dorset waters, especially around Portland Bill and off Chesil Beach. All our fish are line caught sustainably by local day boats and landed directly to Weyfish on Custom House Quay. We avoid catching bream during the April-May breeding season.

Contains FISH

Black bream is a great fish to experiment with, and pairs well with an array of ingredients. Its delicate flavour goes well with fennel, sorrel, lemon, thyme, parsley, olives, asparagus and almonds.

A whole bream can be baked, grilled or barbecued. Try it in the oven with a simple squeeze of lemon, a drizzle of olive oil and some fresh rosemary and thyme. The fish also lends itself especially well to being baked in a salt crust, where the moisture is retained and the crust provides a wonderful delicate seasoning.

Best eaten immediately.

Store in the fridge between 0ºC-5ºC, and eat within 2-3 days.

If you don’t plan to eat within 3 days, then freeze on day of delivery and eat within 3 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight. Do not refreeze.
