Sea Source 2017, 2018 and 2019

Based in Kilkeel, N.Ireland, Sea Source Processing Ltd is wholly owned by the Anglo-North Irish Fish Producers Organisation. Sea Source Processing Ltd processes scallops, Nephrops and whitefish in its own modern quayside premises and is now a major buyer of locally caught fish, helping to ensure that competitive prices are paid to the fishing industry within Northern Ireland.

The awards have provided significant help towards the purchase of a scallop washer, a fish skinning machine, a grading machine, a pallet wrapper, an in-line conveyor, power washers, software to computerise and control intake, weighing and despatch within the processing lines. The funds also helped to purchase a prawn dip line, stainless steel weighing scales, stainless steel freezing trolleys and an automatic stripping machine. Additionally funds were provided towards the purchase of a new chiller and small building extension.

This project was financed by donations made in 2017 (Agreed Donation) and again in 2018 and 2019 (voluntary donations) in return for co-operation of the fishermen during the construction and operation of the Walney Extension offshore wind farm.
