What is a Fishwife?

The term "Fishwife" dates back to the 18th century, and originally referred to the daughters or wives of fishermen who sold fish at the market.

The term gradually evolved into gendered insult for women who were brash, foul-mouthed, and brassy. We relate.

Why Tinned Fish?

Sustainably fished or farmed seafood are an ethical and healthy seafood choice.

Salmon, tuna, trout, sardines, and mussels are protein-packed, high in vitamins and minerals and rich in fatty acids.

Meet the Fishwives

Hi, we're Becca Millstein and Caroline Goldfarb.

We started Fishwife because we love tinned seafood more than anything, and have a sneaking feeling that you do too. We’re so excited to dive in, and would love nothing more than to have you along for the ride.
