About the company

Nicholas Lynch Ltd. is a family run business that was founded by Nicholas Lynch in 1984 after switching from working on his brother John's fishing boat, The Marita, to the processing and wholesale component of the fishing industry. Today, from its state-of the-art processing facility in Ashbourne, Co. Meath, the company is run by Nicholas Lynch and Niall Murray who with their team have developed a very strong wholesale business as well as a retail shop. With unparalleled access to the M50 via the N2, its shop is regarded as one of the finest in the country, having won multiple awards within the sector. The company has always prided itself on its strong focus on quality, with everything going through a 'hand filleting' process with no filleting machines, which has led the company to be widely established as experts in quality seafood processing.

Key Sustainability Commitments

Commitment to Responsible Sourcing:
Nick's Fish salmon has Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association (IOFGA) certification, and will maintain this as part of their Origin Green objectives. Commitment to Water Use Reduction With water consumption being a major factor to their business, Nick's Fish will investigate the possibility of installing a rainwater harvesting system on-site to reduce water consumption.


Spotlight Target Area: Supplier Certification
Having become an Origin Green member in 2016, Nicholas Lynch Ltd. have always
attached a high importance to preserving the environment and nature. The company’s
ultimate target is to have a 100% certified sustainable offering and to support more
environmentally conscious fishing practices and promote Irish caught fish among
its customers. The company also supports the local community and engages in an
education project with local children to promote fish as a healthy and nutritious food.
Nicholas Lynch Ltd. performed particularly well in its supplier certification, with 90%
of its product coming from suppliers with sustainability certifications in 2020.
