Seattle Fish Co.
Each year, Seattle Fish Co. receives and processes more than 7.5 million pounds of seafood in its Denver facility, and supplies Whole Foods, King Soopers, Panzano, Marczyk Fine Foods and others. The family-owned business earned certification from the Marine Stewardship Council, an eco-labeling organization that ensures seafood is traced back to a sustainable fishery.
