What began as a small Pop up Fish stall in 2002 @ the Galway Saturday Market, has become one of Ireland’s Top Artisan Seafood Producer (2013 “Just ask” supplier of the year, Bord Bia, 2017 Food Hero, Restaurant association of Ireland and only recently 2017 Euro-Toques Food Merit Award) feeding thousands of hungry households and the best Restaurants in Galway City, County & beyond.

The Quality, the origin of our catch, & the expertise of our team has earned us the trust, respect and friendship of many chefs and other fish predators.

It is said that we have influenced the way fish is now retailed in Galway City! We look forward to achieving the same Countrywide…  Eatmorefish.ie is Gannet fishmongers Online Fish Market: a free & convenient Click & Collect system and Home Delivery service. Gannet’s selection of fresh Fish & Seafood is now yours to enjoy, wherever you live.

OUR ETHOS

We are surrounded by the richest fishing grounds in Europe. Much of it may have been foolishly handed over to foreign fishing fleets. Let’s enjoy what remains: “Our fish! Our food!”

Promoting locally caught not only benefits us and our local fishing industry. Seeking solutions to reduce our footprint and improve our ways also benefit cute Polar bears. We are a business with a definite environmental commitment.

Honesty. We live and work in the “Hands-on Real World”, not in remote Corporate Marketing La la land… The Quality of our fish is real, and so is our promise when we say we get you to enjoy the best Seafood.

Passionate about Fish! Mad about Seafood? Yes That’s would be us… We always love eating it and cooking with it.  And just like Gannets, we just happen to be so greedy at catching it, we always have more than enough to share with everyone else…

OUR FISH

Donegal, Mayo, Galway, Kerry, Cork, Wexford, Gannet’s fish supply network stretches all along the Western sea front. The Wild Atlantic Way, where 95 % of our wild catch is landed.

Whether we travel to catch it ourselves or set one of our suppliers to pick it for us, we are real Gannets about it… “We want the Freshest, We want the Biggest, We want the Best, We want it All”… Wisdom has taught us that “without is sometimes better than with”, that there is no such thing as second best.

Imported Fish? It happens if the quality and choice is better to what we may source locally. But we have set ourselves 3 rules:

  1. Not to import fish simply because it is cheaper somewhere else.
  2. Only flying fish should take off in the air. None of our imports are air freighted.
  3. Only fish landed in Ireland may be labelled Irish, this does not include the freight terminals of Rosslare, Dublin, & Belfast…

We love seasonality because of its highs and lows. A product temporarily off the supply list, is a given opportunity to taste and enjoy something else. As we say: “Many more fish in the Sea”

GANNET HQ: Our fish factory.

All our fish preparation and filleting takes place at our processing unit @ Gannet HQ. We call it “The Fish Factory” but we are glad it’s not one… It is no more than a small warehouse, on a busy side Street in an industrial estate on the East side of Galway City.

We designed it & built it ourselves, so not only does it comply with all food & safety standards, but it is also according to us, “the best built fish factory” in Ireland. Designed for and by people who are actually handing fresh fish…

If you ever pass us by, call up to say hello. We have an open door policy and always welcome in Visitors and Customers to look behind the scene.
