Prime Seafood is a 7 year old wholesale distributor providing top quality fish and shellfish, only from sustainable fisheries, to chefs of many of the most discriminating restaurants in the nation's capital area (see list below). Generally, we buy directly from fishermen and fly it in overnight, assuring our customers that it's not only the best but also the freshest available anywhere. We seek out and support only those fisheries that are sustainably managed and whose populations are healthy as well as seafood items we know to be free of dangerous contaminants. We provide routine, year-round deliveries, generally of whole fish and shellfish, all harvested in peak condition from Alaska, Washington, British Columbia (Canada), Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Hawaii, the Philippines, Australia, Costa Rica, Italy, Greece and Spain. Our primary items are listed below and described in detail on subsequent pages (links near the bottom of this page). Many believe wild Pacific salmon, halibut and sablefish (blackcod) are among the most delicious fish in the world. They are certainly the most nutritious and healthy. Our primary supplier of king salmon, ivory king salmon, coho salmon, halibut, sablefish, yelloweye rockfish and lingcod is the Seafood Producers Cooperative. With 500 members, it is the largest and oldest fishermen's cooperative in North America, and it is recognized as the industry leader in establishing standards for quality.
