Smoked seafoods in the tradition of the Scottish highlands

Stonington Seafood

Stonington Seafood is owned and operated by Richard Penfold, who began smoking fish 40 years ago in Scotland after studying Fisheries Science in college. He worked underneath two of Shetland’s legendary smoke masters, who were producing kippers and Finnan Haddie for export all over the world. In 1997, he moved to Stonington, ME with his wife and helped to form Stonington Sea Products, a well-regarded and award-winning smokehouse.

After Stonington Sea Products was sold in 2010, he founded Stonington Seafood with the mission of making top-quality Finnan Haddie widely available, keeping the Scottish smoking tradition alive for future generations. He smokes his Finnan Haddie in a historic kiln that was shipped from Scotland in 2001 – a nearly exact replica of a Torry kiln, the first mechanized kiln.
