Producing Quality Fish Products For Over 150 Years
The Morgan family have been involved in the seafood business since the 1890’s and therefore have over 150 years of experience developing a passionate insight for seafood. Generations of family members have passed on an indepth fish catching and processing knowledge so that the Morgan family members continue to use that heritage today.
The company was formally established in 1989 and to facilitate a unique “hand filleting” fish process, a custom built state-of-the-art plant was built, in the heart of Cooley Peninsula overlooking the stunningly beautiful Carlingford Lough.
The company is ideally situated equidistant between Dublin and Belfast and within ten minutes of the M1 Motorway, Morgans have built up a network of customers throughout almost every county in Ireland. Within the various Retail & Wholesale sectors Morgans are widely established as experts in quality seafood processing.

In 2017 to date, Morgans Fine Fish have completed an investment project with a total investment of €41,000. The project was part funded by the Irish Government and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund under the Seafood Capital Investment Scheme and was administered by Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency.
Morgans Fine Fish are one of a number of companies that will receive funding under the European Maritime Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in 2017. The overall funding programme which runs from 2014-2020 was adopted by the European Commission in December 2015 and launched in January 2016 by the Minister for Agriculture Food and the Marine. The Programme provides €240m in funding to the seafood sector (fisheries, aquaculture and seafood processing) over the period 2014 to 2020. The Programme is co-funded by the Exchequer and the EU.
“Morgans Fine Fish are committed to investing in technological advances and efficiencies in order to maintain a state of the art processing facility. We envisage that the funding we have received from BIM through the European Maritime Fisheries Fund will allow us to target further export markets and also increase employment numbers at our rural location.”
