Faulkner Fisheries was founded by me, Sean Faulkner in 1980. I was born in Jersey in 1954 and grew up in L’Etacq; the northern most point of the beautiful St Ouen’s Bay which boasts miles of golden sand, blue sea and surf lined coast.

Historically my family worked as fruit and vegetable merchants and dairy men and as a young boy I learnt to fish the sea and farm the land at L’Etacq. The old boys would take me under their wing and show me the ropes, it seems becoming a fish merchant was in my blood.

After leaving the sea in 1980 having spent six years as a purser with P&O on cruise ships, I set up Faulkner Fisheries. We operate from Jersey and Guernsey with our own viviers, fish shop and a rustic restaurant here at L’Etacq. We also have a Poissonnerie in the famous St Helier Fish Market selling fresh fish and shellfish.



The Vivier

The home of Faulkner Fisheries, an old German bunker transformed into a working fisheries and restaurant.

The Market

Our large seafood display in the fish market, St. Helier.

Head down and check out our large display of local seafood, prepared any way you like by our talented fish mongers.


The ethos in every sector of the companies is seafood. Yet each specialises in their own particular field whether it be retail, wholesale, export and now we provide beautiful freshly cooked seafood served overlooking the breath-taking St Ouens bay with a glass of wine or beer.

I initially set out to build an honest and reliable family run business. Which I am now proud to boast has remained so for over 35 years.

So there you have it.

Bouon Appetit!”
