Foyle Fishermen’s Co-Op
Foyle Fishermen’s Co-Op was established in Greencastle in 1985 to service the fishing activities of some of the trawlers operating out of the port.
As Greencastle harbour expanded the Co-Op was able to lease a site from Donegal County Council to build modern premises comprising of auction hall, cold stores and office space at the deep-water end of the harbour.
The Co-op now services 11 trawlers ranging in size from 14 to 35 metres. Our boats fish all round the coast but operate mostly in the North West with seasonal trips to the Irish and Celtic Seas.
Boats land a full range of white fish that is auctioned at the Co-Op premises, in Greencastle. Fish is sold to clients in Ireland, United Kingdom, France and Spain. Clients range from individual restaurants to wet fish shops, to supermarkets and fish processors. Over the years the Co-Op has earned a reputation for quality fresh whitefish.
