A co-operative made up of over 70 ships
Castletownbere Fishermen's Co-Operative Society Ltd. was founded in 1968 by a group of fishermen who came together to purchase fuel in bulk. This led them to also amalgamating into a sales company to sell their fish.
In 1983, the Co-Op opened its first fish processing unit at the pier in Castletownbere. In 1990, they purchased a fish processing plant (1,500 sq. meters); in 2004 it extended the plant to 5,000 sq. meters where it now processes a large quantity of its members' fish-reducing the number of links in the supply chain from fisherman to customer. They are based on the South West coast of Ireland, landing a high-quality product directly from their own fleet of fishing trawlers.
Their fleet consists of over 70 vessels, ranging from 10 to 40 meters; currently employing 250 people approximately.
