You can count on us to provide safe, sustainable and quality seafood.”

All seafood can be shipped via UPS anywhere in the United States, meaning the fish goes from the ocean to its final destination in 24 hours or less.
Quality Products and Fishing Standards
With 20 years of experience, Honolulu Fish Company is known for its quality, sustainable products. Each fish is chosen with great care by sashimi experts – hand-selected and inspected personally to ensure it meets company standards. HFC does not condone net fishing, as this destroys the natural habitat; all HFC fish are exclusively hook-caught. HFC does not allow its buyers to purchase fish that have not reached reproductive maturity.
