Wholesale Seafood for Restaurants and Grocery

Santa Monica Seafood is the largest wholesale seafood-only distributor in the Southwest, serving the region since 1939. We deliver seafood six days a week to most areas in the region. And thanks to air transit, all of our high-quality wholesale seafood products are available throughout the entire U.S.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality and selection of seafood products at reasonable prices while recognizing the importance of conservation and maintenance of a healthy environment. In fact, we were the first seafood distributor to enter into a formal partnership with the Monterey Bay Aquarium; working with them to apply their rankings to our inventory.

In addition to what is mentioned above, here are just some of the reasons Santa Monica Seafood has become the Southwestern US’s wholesale seafood purveyor of choice:

Local Fish: We’re on the docks in Morro Bay and San Diego when the sun comes up. As direct buyers of seafood (like Swordfish, Dungeness Crab, Rockfish, Sablefish, Uni Roe and more) we’re able to offer the freshest local seafood at the best price possible.

Expertise: We have a full-service team of highly trained outside sales representatives backed up by 24-hour customer service. Our expertise is distinguished by over 100 years of experience backed by a systematized buying approach second to none.

Artisanal Cutting/Custom Packaging: We offer custom processing, packaging and other retail solutions in-house.

Certifications: We are the first and only seafood company in the U.S. to achieve both the internationally recognized FSSC 22000 Certification on our foodservice safety systems as well as ISO 14001 Certification. The Company is also GFSI, MSC, BAP and ASC certified.
