About Fishpeople

Fishpeople is changing the way people eat seafood by creating hassle-free, restaurant-quality seafood meals all made with sustainably-sourced Pacific Northwest and farm-to-table ingredients. With a mission to support local coastal communities, promote U.S. jobs and protect ocean habitats, Fishpeople is a certified B Corporation committed to relentless transparency.

Fishpeople was created as a way to address a serious problem in our state - the Oregon coast has a depressed economy, at the same time one of our most precious resources, seafood, is almost entirely shipped out onto the commodity market. We created our company to find a way to keep the added value of a seafood brand in our local community, while educating consumers about the health and environmental benefits of making good seafood choices.  We believe that B Corp is the only certification that truly gets what motivates us as a company.


 

The Change We Seek®

Fishpeople Seafood was founded on a mission to create a different relationship with the sea by offering consumers the leanest, cleanest form of protein on the planet and focusing on only 11 wild caught, sustainable species to ensure their survival. Fishpeople is building a supply chain network to support coastal communities, create U.S. jobs and protect the oceans and marine habitat. Empowering consumers as change agents to help alleviate the pressure on species that are in decline, Fishpeople is constantly learning and evolving, encouraging a two-way dialog with consumers.
