At Sea Best®, our family loves bringing you an incredible variety of quality frozen seafood, allowing you to enjoy the flavor that could only come from the sea.
In 1950, the Frisch family opened a small, retail fresh fish store on West Beaver Street in Jacksonville, Florida called Beaver Street Fisheries. Together with their mother, brothers Alfred and Hans Frisch worked around the clock to expand their business. With a single truck, they procured a variety of fish from both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts by night, delivering their product fresh to Jacksonville area hotels, restaurants and grocery stores by day.
Over six decades later, the family-owned business that began as a street-side shop with just a handful of help has grown into a company employing over 400 dedicated men and women. During our growth, the Frisch family also introduced the Sea Best brand, a name that speaks to our longtime commitment of putting the highest quality seafood on America’s tables for the best price.
While our business grew rapidly to become one of the top seafood suppliers in the United States, the priorities, practices, and love for the resources that fuel our business have not changed. We still scour the coasts for the finest seafood available, only now the coasts are those of over fifty countries worldwide. We still foster the deepest respect for our waters and continue to employ the highest level of sustainability practices daily. And of course, we've relocated from the small retail store that gave us our start to a much more modern USDA-inspected facility that houses just a few more people.
Sea Best has consistently invested in ourselves, building upon decades of experience in the seafood industry. This success, which has carried our family business from 1950 through to the present day, is unquestionably attributable to an impeccable reputation for quality, an unwavering commitment to service and the disciplined exercise of a single principle: "Treat the customer as you would a friend, and all else will follow."
So while much has changed, the vision and commitment of Sea Best has remained the same. At Sea Best, our family still loves bringing you an incredible variety of seafood frozen at its freshest.
