Wild Fish Direct is a US-based specialty supplier of exceptional, sustainable seafood. Founded in 2014, the company sources wild-capture and aquaculture offerings from its extensive network of suppliers around the world and delivers products that are healthy for consumers and ocean environments to restaurants and businesses nationwide that share these values. Every item Wild Fish Direct supplies must pass its strict vetting process, which requires a recommended status from Seafood Watch or active involvement in a Fishery Improvement Project working towards certification by the Marine Stewardship Council. The company takes these commitments seriously and offers detailed sustainability and traceability documentation that removes confusion, educates and builds trust. Wild Fish Direct also stands behind its products and tests new offerings with a chef advisory panel for overall quality, taste, texture, shelf life, consistency and appearance. This principled foundation has earned Wild Fish Direct business from some of the largest and most respected restaurant brands and distributors in the US. These supporters also believe that sustaining fisheries and the environment for future generations is non-negotiable and central to both mutual success and to roles as leaders in the food industry.
Equally important to the mission at Wild Fish Direct is a commitment to educating consumers and promoting brands working towards a sustainable future. Leveraging its 18 year background in professional film and video content, the company created Wild Fish Media, a new marketing arm that focuses Wild Fish Direct's unique seafood industry knowledge into strategic digital marketing packages that help companies create real value from their brand story, engage buyers and maximise sales. Wild Fish Media soft-launched at the Seafood Expo North America 2019 and is looking forward to helping innovative brands grow.
