Our Operations

Modern facilities, professionally managed.

Our Business

Atlantic Dawn is a vertically integrated business. This means we are engaged in every link in the chain from first catch to final customer. We work across multiple territories and seas to supply a global market with the freshest and highest quality seafood. We also use our extensive experience to source and supply our customers with seafood from other producers throughout the world.

Our Catching Vessels

We specialise in catching pelagic fish – abundant shoaling species such as herring, mackerel and sardines that swim in open seas. Our catching vessels engage in both mid-water trawling and purse seining techniques. We have continued to invest in the most modern, state-of-the-art vessels. The latest additions to our fleet feature hybrid propulsion systems. Specialist fish handling and chilling equipment also form an integral part of our vessel’s design. This ensures our catch is of the freshest, finest quality when it reaches our shore processing facilities.

Our Shore Freezing Facilities

Our shore freezing facilities are strategically located in close proximity to the fishing grounds. Specialist equipment is used to gently grade and package the fish. Our goal is to ensure that the meat texture remains firm, and that the prime characteristics of the fresh fish are never compromised. We use environmentally friendly freezing systems to preserve our catch down to a core temperature of -28 degrees.

Our Sea Freezing Facilities

Our floating processing facility is designed to allow us to deploy the vessel to different catch areas. Certain species migrate and therefore are seasonally abundant in different regions. This allows us to be more flexible with our fishing operations. The onboard freezing system ensures the shortest possible time between catching and freezing the fish.
