BALMORAL SHOW 2019   POSTED: 20/05/2019  This is the 5th year Sea Source has exhibited at the Balmoral Show. The show provides us with a platform to promote the best in Northern Ireland Seafood, sourced from Kilkeel, Ardglass and Portavogie.  The process starts at sea, where the fishermen catch World Class and sustainable seafood from the Irish Sea and adjacent waters. They are supported by Sea Source’s dedicated team based in Kilkeel.  We wish to thank everyone who visited our stand at Balmoral 2019 and who support the Sea Source Seafood Shop in Kilkeel throughout the year.  A special thanks to the entire team who make everything Sea Source does possible. First and foremost our bosses - the local trawler owners and fishermen. The onshore teams in fish sales, the factories and in the office. To everyone who makes Balmoral work - thank you. All the staff enjoy the show and they ALL deserve credit for the effort put in - from preparing the seafood at home to cooking it, selling it and cleaning up at Balmoral!  We’ve had a lot of fun at Balmoral 2019 and we’re already excited about the next events this year, as well as looking forward to Balmoral 2020!

As part of Northern Ireland’s fishing fleet’s ongoing work to improve the selectivity of fishing trawls there is a charter opportunity available in June 2019. Further information is available from the PO office or by contacting ni-geartrials@outlook.com

The Northern Ireland Gear Trials project has secured additional funding from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund to continue our work on selective gear development for a further two years. The project will run until the end of 2020. A full report on the work carried out and progress made during the first two years of the project will be published soon.

Discussing Brexit

Our CEO, Alan met with DUP Leader Arlene Foster MLA & Diane Dodds MEP on 30th November 2018 to discuss NI fishing priorities - Crewing & immigration issues, Dublin’s hard sea fisheries border and Brexit. “Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.” Difficult to welcome or condemn a UK/EU Fish Agreement we don’t have.
