About the company

Established by Michael Quinlan in 1963, Kerry Fish is a family owned seafood business based in Caherciveen, Co Kerry. Continuing on Michael's legacy, today the business is run by his three sons, Liam, Ronan and Fintan. As a multi-strand operation, the company has grown to include a fish processing factory at its head office in Renard, Co. Kerry, fish shops in Caherciveen, Killorglin, Killarney and Tralee, and latterly five seafood restaurants in Killarney, Tralee, Killorglin, Kenmare and Cork. Since the establishment of Kerry Fish, it has been recognised as supplying the finest sustainable seafood from Ireland's west coast to customers all over the world. The company's philosophy is to use artisan skills, age-old recipes and the finest fresh ingredients to bring customers the best wild, organic and superior Irish smoked salmon.


Spotlight Target Area: Energy
Kerry Fish are committed to ensuring there is a healthy future for the Irish fishing
industry. Every day the team at Kerry Fish work in a sustainable and responsible
manner and are committed to reducing the company’s environmental impact
wherever possible.
One such initiative the company has steadfastly focused upon is the reduction of
energy usage in its daily operations. Since the inception of its current sustainability
plan in 2019, the company has reduced energy usage per tonne of salmon produced
by over 6%. The company operates a robust energy management system and
attributes current savings to daily checks on door seals, lighting, and switching off
machinery when not in use. Enhanced and ongoing staff training in this area also helps
to ensure energy is not being wasted throughout its operations.
