Twenty years after setting up her shellfish trading company Triskell Seafood, Sligo-based Frenchwoman Marie-Aude Danguy is looking forward to exhibiting for the first time at Irish Skipper Expo 2020.
Today the company has expanded to offer an extensive range of specialist aquaculture equipment as well as a choice of protective clothing including top international brands Guy Cotten, Le Chameau, Dunlop, Maprotec, DAM, NorthWays, PROS Extreme among others. Marie-Aude and her team will be demonstrating this line of professional fishing clothing and equipment at the show.
“Our trading activities were originally focused on oysters” says Marie-Aude “but obviously our retail range comprising waders, oilskins, gloves, boots, is also suitable for fishermen. What’s more our warehouse in Sligo can arrange overnight delivery anywhere in Ireland.”
The company is also working with partners overseas to develop a brand-new oyster growing system which will be through patent and ready for display in March.
Marie-Aude again: “Innovation is important to us; ours can be a traditional industry, but we’re focused on anything that can reduce labour and increase quality for our growers.”
