About Us

Founded in 1995 by owner and CEO Wayne Samiere, a trained marine biologist, Honolulu Fish Company (HFC) is a top seafood distributor offering more than 30 varieties of eco-friendly Pacific water fish to over 3,000 customers, including top chefs across the country. It is the only direct distributor in the United States that offers more than 14 species of sashimi grade fish. With almost 20 years of experience, HFC is known for its exceptional high quality products. The company is committed to the environment and to promoting sustainability in its fishing practices.

A Honolulu Fish Company each fish is chosen with great care by sashimi experts – hand-selected and inspected personally in the early morning hours at the Honolulu fish market to ensure it meets company standards. HFC does not condone net fishing, as this destroys the natural habitat; and all fish are exclusively hook-caught. The company does not allow its buyers to purchase fish that have not reached reproductive maturity.

The team at HFC selects, packages and prepares its seafood to arrive at restaurants within 24 to 48 hours depending on location. Its award-winning reflective box with two layers of protection is designed to keep fish at 40 degrees or less for 48 hours. Shipping is free.
