Seafood Doctor, Inc. is a family owned and operated business. Our Chairman got his first start in the seafood business back in the 80s when his dad quit the lumber industry to start selling west coast fish out of their refrigerated 5th wheel. In time, they moved to multiple locations and became a distribution company. After many years, our chairman took the reins of the business. Unfortunately, it was found out that the company was in financial chaos and in too deep of a hole to get out of. So, in 1997 the company went bankrupt.
In 1998, he started Seafood Doctor, Inc. and was determined to get back upon his feet. He started brokering seafood from companies he used to do business with, as well as, selling sea scallops from suppliers over on the east coast. Then he started traveling with the buyer of a big scallop company on the east coast soon started traveling to Mexico and China sourcing scallops for him.
During his many trips to China and seafood shows, he met new suppliers and then started importing his own products in under Seafood Doctor. As business grew, Seafood Doctor began to hire more employees to handle the workload and expansion. Seafood Doctor has grown to a global reaching company where products are sourced, bought, and sold in Asia, Mexico, Canada, South America, and here in the USA. Our product line has grown to over 30 different species, 4 trademarks, and 2 offices outside of the US. We also make an effort to make sure all our packaging reflects the quality of our products by using full colored bags and boxes.
