Founded in 1995 by owner and CEO Wayne Samiere, a trained marine biologist, Honolulu Fish Company (HFC) is a top seafood distributor offering more than 30 varieties of eco-friendly Pacific water fish to over 3,000 customers, including top chefs across the country. It is the only direct distributor in the United States that offers more than 14 species of sashimi grade fish. With more than 20 years of experience, HFC is known for its exceptional high quality products. The company is committed to the environment and to promoting sustainability in its fishing practices.
At Honolulu Fish Company each fish is chosen with great care by sashimi experts — hand-selected and inspected personally in the early morning hours at the Honolulu fish seafood market to ensure it meets company standards. HFC does not condone net fishing, as this destroys the natural habitat; and all fish are exclusively hook-caught. The company does not allow its buyers to purchase fish that have not reached reproductive maturity.
The team at HFC selects, packages and prepares its fresh seafood to arrive at homes and restaurant kitchens via FedEx and UPS within 24 to 48 hours. Its custom box is designed to keep fish at 40 degrees or less for 48 hours.
Honolulu Fish Company has appeared on several national television programs and in major national food publications like The New York Times, Food & Wine and Cooking Light. Our products have been used on the Food Network's Iron Chef America. Please go to our press page to see some of the articles!
