Three Thanet fishermen are supplying fresh fish and shellfish direct from their boats and delivering them to people across the entire Thanet area. Faced with the collapse of the whelk price in the Far East and then, a month later, wholesalers stopping buying fish as UK and European markets closed down, Neil Cleminson, Oliver Swift and Tom Bennett set up Thanet Fish Delivery on Facebook.

They currently supply bass, soles, plaice, skate and lobster to Margate, Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Sandwich and are now running a stall at the Guildhall Market in Sandwich on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 4 July.
