Langoustine Prawns

Our deep fishing waters in the Irish Sea and the North East Atlantic off the coast of Northern Ireland provide the perfect conditions for our world class langoustine prawns. Slightly bigger than our European rivals (and we believe a whole lot tastier!), we’re proud that our prawns are served up on plates and barbecues around the world. As a fishing co-operative we catch them, land them, process them, sell them and distribute them, meaning more money goes direct back into our fishing communities through our fishing families and local team.

Our species is the famous Dublin Bay Prawn, latin name: Nephrops norvegicus, a member of the lobster family, known also as the Norway Lobster. It’s larger relative explains why they are so big and so tasty! Locally the Northern Irish langoustine prawn is known as the Clochy.
