Fleet Fish was established in 1985 by ​Charlie's Aunt and Uncle, Eric and Mary ​Cowan. When Charlie was younger, he ​worked on the van with Mary before ​joining the Army. Charlie served in Iraq, ​Germany, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland ​and the Falklands; finishing up as a basic ​training instructor at Catterick. When he ​left the Army, he became an employee at ​Fleet Fish, moving on to purchase the ​business in 2015.

In 2023 he took over the reigns of the ​Ferry Fish Pop-up Shop on the Market Hill ​in Castle Douglas. Charlie's Aunt and ​Uncle, Wyllie and Linda McCulloch, had ​traded on the Market Hill for 38 years, but, ​decided to enjoy a very well deserved ​retirement.

Our Produce

Charlie has built up a strong reputation for the quality of his ​produce. Fish, fruit, vegetables & seasonal produce are hand ​picked weekly at Blochairn Markets, Glasgow.

The van travels to Glasgow during the night to ensure ​freshness - it really can be from market place to your plate in ​less than 24 hours!

Give Charlie a call for any special requests and he will be happy ​to help!
