About our family business
Hollandvis is located by the Scheveningen port. We literally see the freshly caught fish sail into the harbor. We are a true family business and together we ensure that Hollandvis is a prominent wholesale business.
Once upon a time…
Over the years, Hollandvis has rapidly grown into a prominent, international fresh fish wholesale business. Originally, Hollandvis was a cooper, founded in 1941 under the name “A. Pronk”.
As of 1965, the activities were expanded to include the fish and herring trade and the name “Hollandvis” was born. In 1980, the decision was made to transfer to the fish trade entirely, thereby increasing the number of customers; not only in Scheveningen and surroundings, but throughout the whole of the Netherlands and even internationally.
The Hollandvis team consists of fifteen people. As a family business, Hollandvis is proud of the close relationships it has with its customers and employees. The Pronk brothers lead the company, as well as being involved in filleting and packaging the fish whenever necessary. The strength of Hollandvis does not only lie in its top-quality products for a great price, but also in the involvement of all its employees.
The Hollandvis team believes in the quality of its products, and certainly in the provision of its services.

Hollandvis has built a long and trusted relationship with various suppliers. This leads to a wide assortment and customers far beyond the Dutch borders. By managing the entire process ourselves, we are able to deliver the freshest fish of the highest quality.
Purchase across the border…
Hollandvis purchases fish at auctions in both the Netherlands and abroad. Furthermore, we try to purchase fresh fish directly at the source as much as possible. We have contacts throughout the whole of Europe; Denmark, Spain, France, etc. Our fish is also bought within the Netherlands and we have daily contact with Rungis (as one of the first in the Netherlands). Each of our contacts has its own specialty, allowing us to offer a wide range of high quality fresh fish. Because of our intensive and direct contact with our suppliers, we are able to deliver fresh fish.
Well-established collaborations with various partners yield enormous experience in the field of processing fresh fish and shellfish. Hollandvis daily supply of fresh fish guarantees top quality. We can safeguard this quality because we manage the entire process ourselves. After purchase on the Visafslag (fish auction), only a stone’s throw away, the products are delivered to us for processing almost immediately after unloading. With various labels (see CSR), we provide products that have been caught in a sustainable way.
Collect and distribute…
The buyers of fresh fish are varied and are especially formed by the restaurant and catering industry, fish shops, markets, and wholesale. Within the restaurant business, many Japanese restaurants belong to our circle of customers due to our wide (Japanese) assortment.
Via an online order system, customers can simply place an order and then we deliver the fresh fish in the region ourselves.
