Margaret Ritchie MP Welcomes further investment at Kilkeel Harbour by Kilkeel Seafoods



Speaking after attending the official opening of Kilkeel Seafoods news premises at Kilkeel Harbour the MP for the area said;


“This investment by Kilkeel Seafoods in new premises at the harbour in Kilkeel is welcome news for staff and hopefully this investment will bring further employment opportunities to the area, as Kilkeel Seafood continues to develop their product and appeal to this growing market.


Kilkeel Harbour is a thriving area for offshore and inshore fisheries and this complemented by the many associated businesses in the area means there is much untapped potential for future development and investment . This investment by the Kilkeel Seafoods parent company Whitby Seafoods, is very much welcome and shows a great confidence in the local fishing industry and the fishing boats and crew that supply Kilkeel Seafoods with a first class product.
