North Coast Seafoods Fishermen

Real relationships,
Forged over generations.

We partner directly with our trusted, dedicated, veteran fishermen around the globe.

We personally know every dayboat captain that brings our daily fresh catch back to port.

Our Fishermen Are Our Family

Since the early 1950s we have built our business on trust and integrity – and it begins with our people. We partner with the most dependable, responsible, and expert fishermen in local communities throughout the world. They are the backbone of our business and our mutual respect runs deep.

Our North Coast Seafoods fishermen and women help us eliminate the need for the middleman. The fresh fish caught by our veteran fishermen are taken directly from the dock to be processed in our own state of the art facilities before being distributed directly to our customers.

It’s thanks to our North Coast Seafoods fisherman that our customers receive the highest quality fresh and frozen seafood delivered directly from dock to door.

The Fish Our Customers Want — Every Time

It’s true. Some fishermen may think we are too fussy or demanding, but we do not settle for fish that are sometimes fresh. We demand superior freshness and the finest quality always. That is what our customers deserve.

Our longstanding, deeply-anchored relationships with our North Coast Seafoods fishermen allow us to pass along the highest quality catch to our customers, without exception. Along with our rigorous standards, we trust our North Coast Seafoods fishermen’s judgment and expertise when it comes to catching the best fish, crustaceans, and more out at sea.

eliminating stress and bruising of fillets.

Freshness Begins on the Boat

From the moment a live fish is caught, it is only seconds until it is properly preserved in ice. This practice, combined with short trips from dock to door, ensures North Coast receives flawless fish.

In some cases, North Coast Seafoods fishermen help us freeze seafood fast and at extremely low temperatures, often within minutes of catch while still at sea! This aptly called “flash freeze” locks in maximum freshness, texture, and flavor until the moment you’re ready to thaw and prepare it.

Our state of the art processing facilities and refrigeration systems are routinely calibrated to make sure our fish are handled at the precise temperature necessary to maintain freshness and quality when it comes to both flavor and texture.

Since the beginning, we have been committed
to supporting local fishermen.
