The company was started in 1995 by Eugenio and Margarita Sanchez. It was originally named ADS Seafood, a fresh seafood importer that supplied fresh whole fish to processors. The company imported seafood from Mexico and Panama as its primary recourse. Atlantic Fisheries was formed shortly thereafter to do local distribution in the greater Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Palm Beach Florida areas. As the company grew, the need to process whole fish became necessary. A new plant was acquired in 1998 with the necessary space and facilities to begin cutting and processing fresh fish. During this time Mr. Sanchez also expanded the company’s seafood suppliers by securing stable contacts in the United States, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Venezuela. Steady consistent growth and commitment to honest business practices have grown Atlantic Fisheries into a market leader in the fresh seafood processing, packaging and distribution market in the southern United States.
Atlantic Fisheries is committed to providing the freshest seafood available at the best pricing anywhere. We keep our customers supplied with seafood that they can rely on to keep their customers coming back for more. Our goal is to
