About UsFrom Humble Beginnings to National Distributor and Global Exporter
Our family here at OM Seafood starts from humble beginnings. As second-generation immigrants, we come from a diverse background that involves a rich history of seafood harvesting and trading.
Sam always aspired for something greater. When he and his family moved to the States to start their new journey, he had a vision of opening a live seafood market that would bring much-needed seafood to the area. He started to explore and research the surrounding options in the Northwest.
Impressed with what he saw, he reached out to local fishermen and shellfish harvesters. Combining his unique experiences when he was younger, and his desire to bring in unique, live seafood species, he opened one of the first seafood markets in the inner heart of Portland.
Through decades of hard work, our family has been able to carry and deliver a vast selection of sustainable products. OM Seafood has now become one of the largest crab and shellfish distributors in the Northwest.
We pride ourselves on our “Seafood Excellence” philosophy which means having an exceptional product, competent staff, and an efficient distribution process, all while still being a local, family-owned business. Our goal is to deliver the freshest seafood possible at the most affordable prices.
