Among world’s best restaurants and shops LEE FISH is recognized as the leader and the supplier of the highest quality fresh fish and seafood!
LEE FISH was established in 1956 and since then it focuses on quality and freshness of fish and preservation of sea resources to the future generations.
Every fish is caught manually with ropes and hooks and immediately “put to sleep” by Japanese “Iki-Jime” method. It stops formation of lactic acid and therefore helps to preserve natural fish freshness, the highest quality and unique taste. Under “Iki-Jime” method the fish is mildly taken to a lengthened rigor mortis state and freshness time is extended. It means that the fish is supplied to the customer in a precisely fresh state.
Every Wednesday the highest quality fresh fish “from the other part of the world” is delivered to ŠIAURĖS JŪRA shops within 48 hours since the fishing time!
The owners of LEE FISH want to deliver their customers only the highest-quality products.
Therefore, they make great demands for transportation companies and invest to operative delivery chain that was very refined during 15 years of close cooperation with the logistics company. All partners of the company are aware of importance to deliver fresh production in a timely manner and impeccable condition.
