As a seafood wholesaler our business is to sell live, fresh, and/or frozen seafood products to other businesses to be re-sold. We connect the food producers and food operators. Wholesalers like us, help ensure a product is ready to be sold at retailers like markets, grocery stores, and restaurants. Our customers buy in bulk while we manage the details of compliance, shipping, tracking, and more. Smokey Bay does this by having an established more than 20 years of experience in the supplier-vendor networks. We work closely with suppliers to ensure customers are happy with their products. Smokey Bay offers a wide variety of products including live Dungeness crab, live manilla clam, live sea urchin, live geoduck, live oysters and much more.

Fish has a cultural relevance in many different cultural celebrations around the world. In China, eating fish during the Lunar New Year is an important specialty.
