Capetonians have been loving the fresh, ethically caught fish that Mother City Fish delivers.
Liz and Ren are passionate about sustainability and local supply. They bring the freshest fish straight off the boats to fellow fish lovers, eliminating as much of the supply chain as possible. They started out in 2019, selling to family and friends via their area-wide WhatsApp groups, which grew quickly by word-of-mouth. They were overwhelmed by the support from those who were tired of the poor quality of seafood in supermarkets. During lockdown their business expanded and they added a large selection of other locally, sustainably produced products.
Sustainability is at the forefront of the Mother City Fish brand. They can assure their customers that their fish is caught by the most sustainable methods. All their hake and kingklip is caught by long line in accordance with the South African Longline Hake association, of which their supplier is a member – see www.sahlla.co.za for details. Their line fish (e.g. tuna, swordfish and yellowtail) is caught by long line or rod and reel. The fish come onto the boat one by one (i.e. not in a net), thereby greatly reducing bycatch. Mother City Fish does not sell any imported or red listed line fish – no, not even Norwegian Salmon!
