What makes Honolulu Fish Company unique?
Honolulu Fish Company prides itself for being one of the top sashimi distributors in the world, offering 14 species of sashimi-grade fish from Hawaiian and Pacific waters. Just as there is an art to cooking and preparing meals, there is also an art to hand-selecting sashimi. At Honolulu Fish Company, we believe in our art and our product. We offer consistent high quality, reliable delivery and maximum value for the products you purchase from us.
How do I know you are sustainable?
Net fishing destroys the natural habitat, while hook-caught wild fish harvesting has the lowest environmental impact of any fishing method. All HFC products are exclusively hook caught. Also, HFC does not allow its buyers to purchase fish that have not reached reproductive maturity, and 100 percent of fish body parts are utilized. Hawaiian fisheries meet national and international requirements for responsible fisheries, sustainability and conservation. Click here for more information.
