Caught Wild

Greys Marine contracts licenced Fishermen only, to harvest our fish, including the game fish such as Tuna. These experienced fishermen have undergone intensive training, specificially focusing on the special care needed for superior quality fresh fish. Their boats are regularly inspected by highly qualified Food Technologists from the South African Bureau of Standards. They also have to meet stringent safety criteria. Long before Sunrise our Fishermen leave the Harbour in high speed boats for the fishing grounds. In order to keep the colour, quality and delicate taste the fish has to be handled very carefully. All our fishermen take ice to sea with them. Once caught, the fish is immediately laid on mutton cloth - the skin of the fish must not touch the ice. The fish is then covered with an ice slurry to bring down the temperature, and maintain a constant low temperature. Temperature is recorded every hour and logged. After sunset, the boats head back to the Harbour. The catch is then off-loaded into our refridgerated trucks and brought to our factory in Diep River. Our night shift staff clean and process the fish immediately. For distribution the following morning. Fish is important in our diet, as it is an excellent source of essential minerals such as phosphorous, selenium and iodine. Fish is also an important source of Omega 3 Fatty acids, which lessens the likelihood of a heart attack or a stroke.

We do not support unlicenced fishermen, undersized catches, or fishing of protected species.

We produce many value added Fresh, Chilled and Crumbed lines for South Africa's leading Supermarket outlets on a National Basis. We also supply our own Deli's, within Woolworths.
