Gerard and Julie Hassett started smoking Wild Atlantic Salmon as well as Mackeral, Herring, Cod and Pollock in 1985, in their Smokehouse based in Pollagh, Achill Island.
As demand grew, stocks of Wild Salmon declined and a gradual switch to farmed Salmon occurred, especially as the highly rated Clare Island Salmon is on our doorstep.
With the abolishment of drift-netting for Wild Salmon, production is now totally from “Irish Salmon” farmed by Marine Harvest Ltd. and Clare Island Organic is the premium product in our range which also includes Oak-Roasted BBQ Salmon.
Keem Bay Fish Products has developed from a cottage industry supplying locally to a successful agri-fisheries business supplying international customers. They have sold in Ireland, Europe and further afield. We pride ourselves on our quality and customer service and are proud to have lots of repeat custom. All of our stock is freshly prepared and guaranteed to meet all quality standards.
The Chalet Seafood Restaurant has been in the family since 1963 and all of our products are available on our menus. The restaurant is situated in the village of Keel, Achill and can cater for 90 people.
