Meet the Supplier - Saltees Fish
Saltees Fish is a family run business owned by the O’Flaherty brothers founded in 1996. When they started, their principal role was the sale and distribution of white fish caught on their own beam trawlers. Today they operate one of the country’s largest fleets with over 20 vessels and sell fish direct all over Ireland & Europe.
From their base in Kilmore Quay, they fish the south coast of Ireland as far as Kinsale with boats at sea for up to 5 days and landing a bounty of top-quality seafood. They have dedicated types of trawlers to catch specific species.
Beam Trawlers – These vessels catch species such as, Black Sole, Lemon Sole, Plaice Ray & Monk Fish.
Twin Rig Trawlers - These vessels catch species such as, Cod, Haddock, Hake & Pollock.
Dredge Trawl – These vessels are used specifically to catch scallops, there are usually caught off Cardigan Bay or the Isle of Man.
Saltees Fish owns its own fleet of road vehicles which ensures distribution and collection from the trawlers is efficient and helps to guarantee that all the product arrives on time and in the best possible condition.
