Dorset Shellfish

From our pots to your plates

A little bit about us

We have had a really busy start to 2016 despite the wet and windy weather! The boys have been crab and lobster fishing and now are back bass fishing enjoying the thrill of landing a big one!

Our top news is that we are opening an online shop,, please take a look at it via the link. Were able to send you our Great Taste Award Dressed Crab, Taste of the West Gold award winning Crab Cakes, tubs of lovely fresh crab meat, crab pate, homemade fish pies and lots lots more.

We love the photos of our products taken by a great local photographer Lara Jane Thorpe.

Look on the dates and you will find where we trade weekly with Dorset Farmers Markets.

We are attending some great events this season, Dorset Food and Drink Fair at Athelhampton House, Sherborne Christmas Fair and Shaftesbury Christmas Market. Please see our calendar for all our dates.

This is what we do

Dorset Shellfish is owned by Caroline Drever, who runs the business with daughter Stef. They believe in providing quality shellfish and fish caught from her partner Grahams boat Marauder WH22 and other day boats working out of Weymouth. Graham fishes with son Karl, so a real family business.

The boys have again been working all hours for crab, lobster, whelk and line caught bass fishing. (No chance of taking it easy yet love!), and the way we fish is so sustainable that anything not large enough to land or the wrong species is returned to the sea unharmed.

We are very pleased to announce that we recently won Taste of the West GOLD award for our Classic Crab Cakes. And a Great Taste Award for our dressed crab.
