Seattle Fish Company International Kansas City has been acquired by Chicago-based distributor Fortune Fish & Gourmet. Seattle Fish Company (Denver) remains fully operational, and there will be no changes to staff, service, day-to-day business.

"Seattle Fish Company and Fortune Fish & Gourmet share many common ideas and believe in an overall mission to grow seafood consumption, which makes this acquisition the right fit and a mutually beneficial transaction for both companies," said Seattle Fish Co. in a press release.

Seattle Fish expanded into the Midwest market in 2003 and opened a state-of-the-art facility in Riverside, MO, 2015. It has operated as a seafood processor and distributor servicing the finest retailers, restaurants, and clubs in the region for the last 16 years. The company will be rebranded as Fortune Fish & Gourmet Missouri.

Scott Godke, the General Manager of Seattle Fish Kansas City, was hired by Fortune International to continue to oversee the Kansas City operations. This purchase involves only the Kansas City operations of Seattle Fish and does not include the Denver-based processing or distribution operations.

James Iacino, Executive Chairman of Seattle Fish states, “This is a strategic and beneficial transaction for both corporations. Seattle Fish has called Colorado and the Midwest home for over 100 years. We are looking forward to continuing that legacy while making strategic investments in our core market.”

Seattle Fish Company International has been a part of the Colorado community and Rocky Mountain region for over a century and is looking forward to the opportunity this transaction offers to reinvest in strategic initiatives in its market.
