In 1987, sitting in a kitchen in the small town of Castletownbere in the west of Cork, two young friends Richard Murphy and Peter O Sullivan had a keen interest in fishing and founded what would later become Shellfish Ireland. As the years progressed, Shellfish Ireland grew to become a respectable and reliable seafood producer. As a leading supplier of sustainable shellfish including crab, shrimp, lobster, and prawns, to the local and international markets Richard and Peter take pride in their produce.
Shellfish Ireland supply us with scallops, lobsters, prawn and crabs and all products are locally sourced from Irish waters. Shellfish Ireland has won The Great Taste Award in 2014 & 2015, and Blas na Heireann in 2016. The team are members of Origin Green and their crab is a part of the Fisheries Improvement Programme.
