Our Story

Triskell Seafood Ltd was founded in 1999 by Marie-Aude Danguy, a native of Brittany on the west coast of France. Coming to Ireland as a student at Sligo IT in the late ‘80s, Marie-Aude stayed on and learnt her trade working in shellfish farms throughout the northwest, her passion for shellfish apparent from the very start.

In business now for over 20 years, Triskell Seafood Ltd was originally set up to sell oysters and clams to France and has since expanded its activity right across Europe. The company today covers all aspects of the Aquaculture Industry from trading of live shellfish to the supply of specialised aquaculture equipment and accessories. We also facilitate the supply of seed and are expert at advising new and existing businesses on set-up and best practices. Our personalised service includes on-site visits in order to ensure optimum results. Marie-Aude recognizes the importance and role that her suppliers and customers have in making the business the success it has become.

Triskell Seafood Ltd are synonymous with excellence in service and reliability. With our knowledge and understanding of the Aquaculture Market, combined with a real expertise in logistics and export, we will deliver your order on time and according to your specific requirements.
