Rockabill’s experience pays dividends
Rockabill Shellfish is a family- run company with more than 30 years experience in the fishing industry, operating its own fleet of trawlers, refrigerated trucks and a number of processing plants located in Ireland and Britain.
It can supply assured quality seafood products, including both frozen and fresh scampi; live/frozen razor clams; monkfish, velvet crab, brown crab, cockles and a number of other seafood products.
“We have invested heavily in our British Retail Consortium accredited processing plant in Balbriggan, Co Dublin, having completed a very large investment in the facility — one of the largest single investments in the fishing industry in Ireland in 2014/2015.
“We have installed a state-of-the-art traceability system to ensure the products you purchase from us have been processed in our pristine, ultra modern factory by our highly trained staff while remaining fully traceable back to our vessels and the fishing ground where the product was caught.”
In addition to the BRC certification, the company’s processing facility has also been independently audited under the Bord Iascaigh Mhara Responsibly Sourced Standard and the Responsible Irish Fish schemes.
“These schemes ensure our factory meets the stringent requirements of the respective Standards while ensuring our traceability system provides assurance that the seafood products we produce are traceable to vessels contributing to the longterm sustainability of fish stocks through their fishing practices.”
Rockabill maintain its own fleet of 14 modern trawlers, all equipped with onboard refrigeration.
“Our own vessels fish for a number of species ranging from day vessels that catch live razor clams and live scallops to stateof-the-art factory vessels catching Dublin Bay prawns and freezing them on board.”
