"This deal will create the most reliable and comprehensive fish wholesaler in the UK and enable us to better serve our clients across the country," said Kevin Coleman, managing director of Channel Fisheries.
"Richard Murray and Murray's are widely respected for their dedication to the best-quality products, commitment to sustainability, and flexible, unquestioning service that always goes above and beyond."
Richard Murray, founder and owner of Murray's said: "The joining together of Murray's and Channel Fisheries, two companies focused on providing the best service throughout London and the UK, is a very exciting development.
Under the terms of the agreement, Murray will become a director and shareholder of Channel Fisheries and will lead the sales and marketing operations.
