Keep It Seasonal

A general rule for the seasons regarding fish local to the South Coast is very simple, FLAT IN SUMMER, ROUND IN WINTER.

Some seasons cross and the water temperatures can have a slight affect but trying to keep to the guide below will ensure you are eating the right product at the right time (i.e. like strawberries at Wimbledon!)
