The Fishmongers’ Company

We are a Traditional Company with Modern Values

The Fishmongers’ Company is one of the oldest and most ancient Livery Companies of the City of London, one of the ‘Great Twelve.’ For 700 years it has stood on the banks of the River Thames playing a leading role in upholding the standards in the trading of fish and shellfish . A role it continues today, as well as making a significant contribution to the UK fishing sector and other non-fishery areas through our Philanthropy and Grants projects.

Since 1272 the Fishmongers’ Company has combined our support for a thriving seafood trade with charitable giving and unity in fellowship. Find out more about where we have come from and our modern purpose in this animated film.
