Our Heritage

“Fresh Fish is Our Heritage”

At Still Waters, we understand today’s pressures on chefs to produce food to the highest quality, to deliver something amazing, to deliver something big.

.

Our Grandfather, Alex Shaw, skipper of the Portavogie fishing trawler ‘Still Waters’ landed the biggest fish ever in Portavogie, August 1952 weighing a few hundredweight short of a ton and measuring 15 feet in length.  All work ceased at the fish market in Belfast that Thursday when Mr Hubert Cully arrived at the premises of Arthur Tempest Ltd. With the catch on his lorry. “A basking Shark”, “A Herring Shark”, were some of the opinions expressed by the various merchants.  Not the Fishery Department at the Ministry of Commerce, nor any of Portavogies fisher folk could put a name on it, for they had never seen anything like it before!

.

As an accomplished skipper, and founder of the ‘Still Waters’ in 1942, our Grandfather had always inspired us.  As children, we were in awe of his courage to face the angriest of storms, his skill to skipper a fishing trawler and its crew safely to shore.  We recall his weathered face and his hard hands with fondness.  To us, that man could deliver like no other.  Since then, our family has bred fishermen and skippers who have a had a heart and sixth sense for the sea.  Indeed, our father, Angus Carson fished out of Portavogie for 35 years. 

.

The Shaw-Carson legacy and passion for seafood has graced the Portavogie harbour for many years now to bring our customers and consumers sustainable, fresh fish and one thing has always remained, we never compromise on quality.

.

At Still Waters our standard is to offer the service and quality that can only be achieved from true heritage……

.

Our promise is to deliver big!
