Rooney Fish

We all know that Kilkeel is synonomous with fishing in Northern Ireland. Rooney Fish, which is based there, has been in business since 1975. It is family-run and is now in its second generation with Andrew Rooney at the helm.

They are the people behind the 3 star Great Taste award-winning Millbay Oysters. They opened their oyster farm in nearby Carlingford Lough in 2014. Three stars are notoriously difficult to get which shows how special these shellfish are. They are one of the Top 50 Foods in the world.

They also catch, prepare and process Langoustines, Whole Brown Crabs, Green Crabs, Velvet Crabs, Lobsters, Whelks, Scampi Tails, Heads and Claws and Scallops.

Their state of the art plant is the only one of its kind in the area with full EU approval. The processes currently running are; Nitrogen Freezing, Blast Freezing, Cooking Facilities, Cold Storage, Fully Automated Graders and a variety of Packing Operations. They also operate an in–house laboratory facility to ensure quality control and hygiene. This is top quality seafood from people who know their stuff.
