Our rich heritage & community.

In 2012, Michael and Amber started their own business, MacNeil Shellfish Ltd, bringing with them a wealth of knowledge, experience, as well as strong connections with family, friends, independent fishermen and agents. Starting MacNeil Shellfish enabled Michael and Amber to combine all of their passion, knowledge and experience to build a business that is innovative, enterprising and sustainable.

We are an ambitious family-run business that works hard with local fishing communities, ensuring our work generates employment and boosts rural island economies. Most of our shellfish are sourced from the West Coast of Scotland. This is an ideal location for shellfish due to its plentiful feeding grounds and well-developed ecosystem heated by the Gulf Stream. We also source shellfish from Orkney and other parts of Scotland, so adverse weather conditions in one area mean we still have steady sources elsewhere unaffected by the weather. We pride ourselves on our ability to be a constant and reliable source.
