FISH Seafood Deli, the seafood company based in Rosscabery, have developed and launched a new product range under the brand name ‘Fresh Fish Deli’.

Made using locally-caught fish from DC Fish’s trawler off Union Hall, and a network of local fishing boats, the range of fish cakes and pies is made to be put straight in the oven in the containers and the pies are ready in 20 minutes.

 Business partners Monica Buckley of DC Fish and Peter Shanahan of Fish Seafood Deli are both well recognised in the Irish seafood sector, with DC Fish receiving the award for ‘Fishing Enterprise of the Year’ at the BIM Awards in 2016 and Peter Shanahan, a finalist in the 2016 BIM Young Fishmonger of the Year.

‘We are both very excited about this new range,’ said Monica. ‘We are, after all, seafood people. Peter is a master fishmonger and seafood retailer and along with my husband Niall Deasy, I run a successful seafood business. We are proud to say our products are now stocked in SuperValu stores in Munster and they will be available nationwide this year.’ 

The Deli is also taking part in Supervalu’s Food Academy and working with BIM’s Seafood Innovation Academy which is assisting the business with another new product concept. 

Fish Seafood Deli and DC Fish collectively employ 25 people in West Cork. 

DC Fish operates a successful seafood business model that offers a ‘frozen at sea’ product range to domestic, retail and export-driven wholesale seafood businesses.

 Fish Seafood Deli has gone from being a retail operation to selling fresh fish directly to hotels and restaurants, and from two mobile units. For more information on Fresh Fish Deli products, visit
