crayfish trappers wanted postcard

We're always looking for Crayfishermen who can supply us with American Signal Crayfish on a regular basis.

Best prices paid... and we accept Crayfish all year round.

The Crayfish Company was founded in 2009, initially supplying the UK catering industry with live American Signal Crayfish.

From the start we wanted to be the best Crayfish company in Britain - quality and service is the foundation of our success.

Every day we still endeavour to be the best

  • The best wholesaler of Crayfish
  • The best international supplier of Crayfish
  • The best buyer of Crayfish from Crayfishermen
  • Provide the best traps for Crayfishermen - amateur or pro

In 2010 we expanded into Europe, supplying wholesalers in France, Holland and Germany as well as supplying Crayfish to more and more restaurants in Britain. In Autumn 2010 we made our first aquisition - purchasing a Crayfish Farm in Poland allowing us to harvest Crayfish from its pristine waters.

This pioneering high tech Crayfish facility employs up to a dozen people in peak season and allows us to process a full range of Crayfish products with market leading Quality Control.
