Del Pacifico Seafoods LLC
Address

Del Pacifico Seafoods is a social and environmentally responsible wholesaler that supplies retailers and food service companies the finest quality seafood, with the lowest impact to the environment in the industry. By fishing from small boats called 'pangas,' rather than trawlers, Del Pacifico Seafoods reduces the effect of destructive fishing practices, consumes less fuel, and lowers bycatch. Pangas fish with an artisanal technique that uses wind and tide to drift a highly selective net called a 'suripera.' This fishing technique has the lowest bycatch and fuel consumption per pound globally. 

Having a limited range and storage, pangas must off-load within hours of a catch. The company's shrimp specialists pick up the catch every day and take it to the company-owned state-of-the-art processing facility. All seafood products are painstakingly processed, frozen, and shipped within a few hours from capture. This ensures high quality from capture to delivery.  

Del Pacifico Seafoods is committed to protecting the oceans by reducing the effect of destructive fishing practices. Del Pacifico's shrimp is also the only shrimp fishery certified by Fair Trade in the world. Through Fair Trade, fishermen earn additional income to invest in projects that support the ecosystem and communities that produce these exceptional seafoods. Our shrimp meet rigorous Fair Trade USA standards in production and trade, including the protection of fundamental human rights and responsible use of the natural environment. 

The company works in close collaboration with artisan fishermen groups to supply the best seafood to the United States. The company believes that purchasing seafood harvested responsibly is the path to replenishing the oceans and the company donates to projects that support environmentally responsible fishing and to the communities that produce these exceptional seafoods.
