Tre-Fin Day Boat Seafood brings a unique product to the market: same day-caught seafood from Oregon and Washington waters, processed in-house. Based in Ilwaco, Washington, the small fleet fishes year round, from healthy seasonal stocks in regional waters. Within 24 hours of coming out of the water, the fish are back at Tre-Fin’s certified processing facility, where they are hand-cut, one at a time, vacuum-packed and flash-frozen.
Tre-Fin supplements their catch with fish from local, like-minded fishers who use the same Day Boat protocols. Knowing that it costs more to fish using these sustainable practices, Tre-Fin pays their local partners a higher price for fish. As one of just a few producers who control the entire process—from catching, to hand-cutting and flash-freezing, to distributing directly to the customer—Tre-Fin believes that a small fleet operating with 100% traceability can change the fishing industry.
Tre-Fin's business model is rooted in an unwavering commitment to their belief that fish frozen at the peak of freshness, is the best—and best tasting—option for the continued health of oceans and eaters. That dedication shows up everyday, in their practices and principles, which better for fishers and fisheries, the environment and eaters.
