About Us

About Seattle Fish Co.

In 1918, 16-year-old Mose Iacino embarked on a dream to bring fresh seafood from Seattle to the people of Denver and the surrounding area. Although much has changed since those dustbowl days, Seattle Fish Co. remains a family-run business, where the traditions of innovation, dedication, passion and service live on. We now have a top-notch team of over 130 employees who deliver quality products to more than 800 Rocky Mountain companies, making us one of the largest seafood distributors in the Western United States. As an industry leader, we’re active members of organizations that continually work to improve the quality and sustainability of practices in the seafood industry.

Operations

In the beginning, when we still relied on the rail system, we’d have to wait a week before salmon and halibut from Seattle would arrive in Denver. Technology has now made it possible to deliver the most fresh seafood from both coasts and around the world to the Rockies in hours, not days. As veterans in the seafood industry, we strive to develop and maintain close personal and professional relationships with our highly respected seafood suppliers to ensure 100 percent satisfaction from catch to cook. This is all made possible thanks to our enthusiastic team of dedicated employees who work around the clock—seven days a week—in our state-of-the-art Denver facility.
