  • Farmed seafood products, raised both on land in ponds, in re-circulating tanks, and in near-shore coastal waters.
  • Processors convert the whole fish or shellfish to various other product forms such as fresh fish fillets or steaks or other items such as frozen products, fish portions, and canned or smoked products.

Cresco Seafood has established relationships with seafood suppliers in these countries, all of whom work hard to deliver top-quality seafood straight from the water to your doorstep.

We believe strongly in the importance of building long-term relationships with our clients and suppliers by providing professional service before, during, and after we have understood and met their requirements.

To help achieve this, there are Cresco Seafood team members in:

  • Thailand,
  • Vietnam and,
  • The Philippines,

working closely with an ever-growing network of seafood producers, checking their production methods personally, educating them on the latest techniques, so ensuring we receive only the best quality seafood products.

Having local expertise in these Asian markets provides us with invaluable market intelligence across the entire seafood sector in the region. From current consumer trends, to the very latest developments in production, packaging, transport and logistics. Not only does this give us a significant competitive advantage, it means Cresco Seafood can help you make better, more informed decisions.

Our global reach enables us to fill orders more efficiently and cost effectively guaranteeing you with most competitive cost prices across our entire seafood range.


The Cresco Seafood management team has over 20 years’ combined experience doing business in Asia and globally, primarily in shipping and logistics.

We have a unique relationship with the region’s best freight forwarding agents. Our management’s strong links to the shipping industry ensure that Cresco Seafood deliver globally in a timely manner. As you will know, this is especially important with perishable seafood.

Cresco Seafood normally deals by the container load, so we are able to ensure temperature controlled shipping from source to the delivery point. Our freight agents excel in shipping climate controlled, refrigerated, chilled and frozen cargo whether by air or by sea. We work closely with them, thus ensuring that we:

  • streamline the process, and
  • deliver our products from the source to you, the client,
  • rapidly and efficiently.

Cresco Seafoods’ mission is to bring you the healthiest, freshest, organic, natural seafood, and to support local seafood suppliers, and their communities, in the countries in which we operate.

We pride ourselves on our quality and our customer service and will always go above the norm to make your experience the best possible. We are always available to answer questions and to give you that personal touch!

Cresco Seafood has people on the ground committed to finding only the best seafood in their area. Thanks to their local market expertise, they know just where to get it. They also ensure quality control. They work very closely with commercial fishermen, making sure that their seafood meets recognized safety regulatory standards – so that the seafood you receive from us is safe and fresh!

We have a strong network of local partners that we have built up over time in many countries and with whom we have negotiated preferential pricing. Given these relationships, we can usually source all types of seafood as cheaply, if not more cheaply, than you would if you called the source directly.

We bring the season’s best seafood conveniently and quickly to your location.
