From their website: Monterey Fish is based in San Francisco, California. While we are small
enough to provide individual personalized service our sales volume is great
enough to allow us to buy in volume directly from local boats and producers
nationwide, enabling us to sell the best quality seafood at fair
Over the years, we’ve worked to establish a reputation for
quality not just with our customers but with our network of suppliers. Our
suppliers know that if they’ve got premium product, we’re willing to pay for it.
We at Monterey Fish do our best to bring you the freshest, quality seafood
available. Setting the standard for quality and service has been our obsession
We follow the strictest guidelines when it comes to seafood
handling and expect all our suppliers to do the same. We welcome periodic
inspection by the FDA, State and local Health Services. We are HACCP compliant,
meaning we comply to a strict set of regulations implemented by the Federal
Government to ensure the wholesomeness of seafoods. Monterey fish uses only
suppliers, growers, producers and fishermen who are HACCP compliant and have a
detailed HACCP plan on record. As well, all our shellfish comes from certified
waters which are tested by the appropriate state and local health agencies
Monterey Fish employees are involved in all facets of the
seafood industry. We give priority to hiring people who have previously been
involved in some facet of the culinary world . We work at being involved in
consulting, writing, speaking and educational issues for the seafood industry.
This gives us a broader perspective on current issues such as conservation,
availability and even cooking technique. We use our background to keep you
informed and to help solve problems which may arise.
Although we have
extensive knowledge of all facets of the seafood business we realize there may
be a need for further expertise. If we need information on a subject we rely on
a diverse group of industry leaders such as representatives from National Marine
Fisheries, National Fisheries Institute and Fisherman’s Associations. Our
network of experienced advisors and friends include environmental activists,
educational and health experts as well as celebrated chefs.
