What Qwehli is about

Sourcing the best products

For 8 years, Qwehli have been avidly scouring the world and the oceans, as well as the coasts of France, in search of mythical depths and convincing the best producers to entrust them with their catch. Qwehli offer a range of exclusive products based on two high standards: taste and proper fishing methods. What makes Qwehli’s selection unique is their combination of specialists: great chefs and in-house experts. The great chefs, their preferred testers, confirm that the products have full flavour. Their experts, specialised in fishing and aquaculture, closely manage their “catches”. Sustainable fishing methods, seasonal needs of the fish and extreme freshness – everything is selected with the greatest care.

Preserving their freshness

As soon as they come out of the water, seafood products quickly lose their properties of odour, flavour and texture. Qwehli’s commitment is to ensure you receive a product carefully preserved as if fresh out of the water. They are constantly searching for ways to maintain this extra-special freshness. Each product has its own special method. They use cryogenics for their awabis and quick on-board freezing for their toothfish. The products from the French coasts benefit from Qwehli’s home-grown technology: CAS Fresh®. This is a global breakthrough that is revolutionising seafood preservation. Using the combined effects of extreme cold and a magnetic field comparable to that of the North Pole, the flavours, smells and textures of the fish are kept intact.

Becoming the fishmonger of the chefs

Qwehli are the fish suppliers to the most elegant tables throughout the world. They serve chefs who are highly exacting about flavour, who want something more than excellent fare, and who want to pass on with them the message that serving the Sea is an Art.

Working with more than 1400 chefs from 24 major gastronomic cities around the world, Qwehli represents the guarantee of high quality products with a texture that is kept intact as well as the total respect of the sea.

Line Caught Sea Bass, Dicentrarchus labrax from Atlantic Ocean

Qwehli’s sea bass is authentically “line-caught" by small Breton boats which specialise in line fishing and only land a few of these fish per day. The fish is captured with the greatest of care, so that it is not crushed by the nets and keeps its flesh intact, with no bruises. It offers an immaculate white flesh with a distinctive intense flavour. This product is "as if it had just come out of the water" thanks to CAS Fresh® technology.

Patagonian Toothfish, Dissostichus eleginoides from Kerguelen Islands

Qwehli’s Patagonian toothfish comes from the French waters of the Kerguelen Islands between the Roaring Forties and the Furious Fifties where the wind and 10 metre swells meet the icy cold of the polar region. Fished at a depth of around 1500 metres, it can fight extreme temperatures thanks to the antifreeze protein in its blood. It offers a meltingly soft texture, pearly white flesh and an equally unique flavour with almond butter notes. This product is "as if it had just come out of the water" thanks to CAS Fresh® technology.

Turbot, Psetta maxima from Island of Noirmoutier

Qwehli’s turbot is produced by aquaculture to extremely high standards, committed to respecting the natural life cycle of the species and our environment. It comes from the only aquaculture farm with “Red Label” certification and is “bled” to obtain a firm, delicate texture and perfect white flesh. This product is "as if it had just come out of the water" thanks to CAS Fresh® technology.

Carabineros, Plesiopenaeus edwardsianus from Spain

Also known as “Brillantes” in Spain and considered as a real “national treasure”, Qwehli’s carabineros is fished by trawler in the deep waters of the Atlantic coast of Andalusia. It has a very distinctive flavour thanks to the salt levels of the Mediterranean waters. It offers a pronounced iodine taste, followed by a subtle spicy note.
