About Us

Generation to Generation

In 1977, Joseph Huh established a small seafood company dedicated to distributing the freshest quality products to local retailers. Joseph's two sons, Peter and Paul Huh, realized his vision to the next level and founded Pacific American Fish Company (PAFCO), a family-owned full service seafood enterprise that offers over 3,000 fresh and frozen products. PAFCO is the parent company of numerous brands including Oceankist, Pacific Surf, Snak N'Go, and Pete's Seafood.

Only The Freshest

Over two generations have been dedicated to providing our customers with the freshest seafood products. For this reason, PAFCO manages and has direct access to fishing vessels, fish and shellfish farms, and processing plants from around the world. We operate manufacturing and purchasing offices in North America, Latin America and Asia. As a result, we are able to directly oversee all of our brands and all phases of their production.

Sourcing Responsibly

Throughout the years, PAFCO has established strong relationships with environmentally responsible suppliers worldwide. PAFCO is a conscientious company that believes in the efforts of sustainability and values the unique balance of our natural oceans. Our stance as a strong advocate of sustaining the world’s seafood resources has been a part of PAFCO’s long-standing tradition. We recognize that employing good environmental practices benefit everyone involved in the supply chain—from the supplier to the consumer.

Exceptional Quality

Currently, PAFCO is one of the most successful seafood companies in Southern California, an accolade we attribute to the exceptional quality of our products. We go above and beyond all government food safety requirements to ensure we provide the safest and highest quality seafood. Moreover, we employ state-of-the-art technology at our Vernon, CA facility and throughout our entire business to guarantee that our brands are cutting edge and meet the needs of today’s lifestyles.
