We have been a commercial fishing operation out of West Ocean City, MD for the past 30+ years. We have fished for lobster, Jonah crab, black seabass, rockfish, red crab, and a variety of other species and have been selling off of the boat for the past 10 years. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we began selling fish that couldn’t be sold by the commercial fishing fleet because the large fish houses in New York and Pennsylvania were shut down. We planned to help the fishing community survive and sell fresh, affordable seafood to the public in a time when grocery shopping was scary, so we established a drive-thru and were amazed at how many people came and bought fish.
This has evolved into a new family business venture, Skilligalee Seafood. We continue to adhere to our pledge of “fresh and affordable seafood” and will be expanding our seafood selection soon. We will continue to sell our catch and are currently working to partner with other commercial fishermen to meet our demand.
