Gannet Fishmongers

Stephane Griesbach is a familiar sight at Galway Farmers’ Market and a fish supplier of choice to many of the best restaurants in the area.


But, not only does he supply “the best quality, best value in locally sourced, wild Irish fish”, he is also responsible for a creating unique website, which “is intended to be a comprehensive source of information about fish and the fish industry both for the public and for participants in the various aspects of the industry”. 


Although still (perhaps always) a work in progress, this selfless task is already a remarkable achievement, listing nationwide sales outlets and providing an extraordinary range of detailed and educational information - including, for example, a list of ‘Your Top 8 Fish’ which Stephane begins somewhat mischievously with Wolf Fish, which is actually pretty rare, but it’s a great attention grabber.


Commenting that “Cod has become the benchmark of the fish world”, Stephane points out that that this currently controversial fish is not endangered everywhere. “Some areas in Europe have very healthy cod stocks while others are under serious pressure. Cod populations around Ireland are very low in the north Donegal area and in the Irish sea. However the stocks of cod in the Celtic sea, south of Ireland, are so healthy that the 2012 quota was increased by nearly 75%.”


And, although it is not always be easy to know exactly where fish is coming from, looking out for the Responsible Irish Fishing logo is a good start. 


An interesting man and great fresh fish.
