Monterey Fish Market is based in San Francisco, California. While small enough to provide individual personalized service, the company’s sales volume is great enough to allow it to buy in volume directly from local boats and producers nationwide, enabling Monterey Fish Market to sell high-quality seafood at fair prices.

Over the years, Monterey Fish Market has worked to establish a reputation for quality, not just with its customers but with its network of suppliers. The company’s suppliers know that if they’ve got a premium product, Monterey Fish Market is willing to pay for it. Monterey Fish Market does its best to bring its customers the freshest seafood, captured and handled with care and respect. Setting the standard for quality and service has been an important commitment for the company since 1979.

Monterey Fish Market follows strict guidelines when it comes to seafood handling and expects that from all the suppliers it works with. The company welcomes periodic inspection by the FDA,  state, and local health services. The company is HACCP compliant, meaning it complies with a strict set of regulations implemented by the federal government to ensure the wholesomeness of the seafood it provides. Monterey Fish Market uses only suppliers, growers, producers, and fishermen who are HACCP compliant and have a detailed HACCP plan on record. All the company’s shellfish comes from certified waters that are tested by the appropriate state and local health agencies weekly.

Monterey Fish Market employees are involved in all facets of the seafood industry. Employees work at being involved in the consulting, writing, speaking, and education for seafood issues. This gives everyone who works at the company a broader perspective on current issues such as conservation, fish resource availability, and even cooking techniques. Using this background, employees are able to keep customers informed about the seafood products Monterey Fish Market carries. 

Even with extensive knowledge of all facets of the seafood business, Monterey Fish Market recognizes that there is always more to learn. If the company needs more information on a subject, it relies on a diverse group of industry leaders such as representatives from the National Marine Fisheries Service, the National Fisheries Institute, and the Fisherman’s Associations. This network of experienced advisors and friends include environmental activists, educational and health experts, and celebrated chefs. The company is also proud to have teamed up with various groups over the years in support of better understanding and nurturing the oceans.
