In 1977, Mr. Huh co –founded Pacific American Fish Company (PAFCO) with his younger brother Mr. Paul Nam Huh and their late father Mr. Joseph Huh. As just a teenager before going to college, Mr. Huh started helping his father with all of the business responsibilities.


When deciding on colleges, Mr. Huh traded the California weather for a small liberal arts college in Western Massachusetts, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry at Amherst College in 1982. During his time at college, Mr. Huh met Mrs. Jihee Huh, who he later married. They have two children together.
