Our Story

We are two brothers, Luke & Oliver Marriott, and together we created Marriott Fisheries to share our passion for commercial fishing and to provide the nation with the very best seafood that it has to offer.

Growing up in a commercial fishing family it was normal for us to spend the weekends and summer holidays at sea learning the family trade. After leaving high school we naturally found ourselves taking the family boats from the small town of Southwold on the East Coast of England where we had spent our youth learning the fishing grounds. Over time we both ventured off to learn different fisheries all around the country, primarily on the east and south coast all the way from Kings Lynn to Brixham!

Along the way we met countless fisherman all around the country who share the same passion as ours, taking great pride in the quality of our catch using sustainable fishing methods. Working closely with these friends has allowed us to bring you the best possible quality fish our country has to offer.

Our idea for Marriott Fisheries was born on a windy night on a piece of scrap paper when we couldn’t get out fishing due to the weather. We wanted to find a way to sell our fish directly to the public allowing us to cut out the markets and fish merchants which usually add 2-3 days on the fish reaching the end customer. There was just one big problem; we didn’t have anywhere to process the fish and orders.

In 2022 Luke found an opportunity to purchase an existing fresh fish shop on Aldeburgh beach, he got straight to work refurbishing the property and making it his own opening for the summer holidays. Shortly after this the website was born!
