Our Locations

Beginning as a small importer of specialty foods, Lusamerica Fish quickly evolved into one of the largest seafood wholesale distributors and secondary processors on the West Coast. The company sells a wide range of West Coast and imported seafood under its “Tasty Catch®” brand. The current Lusamerica Fish team has over 500 employees managing a supply chain that serves both the West Coast of the United States and national accounts.

The company is headquartered in Morgan Hill, California, just south of the San Francisco Bay Area. They moved from San Jose to the Morgan Hill plant in 2006. The facility provides 65,000 square feet of space for seafood processing and distribution. It is equipped with state-of-the-art filleting, pin-boning, and packaging equipment, as well as extensive frozen and value-added processing capabilities.

In 2010, we added a processing and distribution plant in Fife, Washington to better serve the Northwest region of the country. This 83,000 square foot facility provides different processing options, freezing capabilities and distribution throughout the region.

We are direct processors with automated fillet lines, mechanized portion control, tray pack and skin pack options, spiral and blast freezing capacity, along with ozonized water systems for food safety that works in compliance with our full sanitization protocols.

Lusamerica Fish - Vernon trucksOur third facility in Vernon, California, enables us to efficiently serve Southern California, Nevada and Arizona. We maintain our own fleet of trucks that operate from all our locations and serve national accounts via contract carriers. Our fresh and frozen products can be found on the shelves of large retail chains and box stores as well as small regional groups that desire best in class service and quality.

In 2020, we took a big step in supporting our local fishing community. Our Morgan Hill plant invested in a new groundfish fillet line to start processing local West Coast fish and we started leasing a dock in Moss Landing Harbor located in the heart of Monterey Bay, CA. In 2021 we started leasing some office space next to our dock in Moss Landing Harbor and have invested in a new hoist, a new ice-hopper, a new de-icer, and additional cold storage space. We’ve seen significant growth as we partner with over twenty-five fishing boats via our dock — 95% of which are small-scale day boats. Thanks to the investments in updated infrastructure and relationship building by our owners, we’ve also successfully attracted several higher-volume trawler vessels back to the harbor — a type of groundfish boat that hasn’t been actively fishing out of the harbor for over a decade.
