Monterey Fish Market is a sustainable wholesale and retail fish and shellfish distributor with locations in Berkeley and Pier 33, San Francisco. They pride themselves on the guilt-free nature of their carefully vetted offerings.
Founded by Paul Johnson and Joan Steele in 1979, Monterey Fish Market is small enough to provide individual personalized service, and their sales volume is great enough to allow them to buy in volume directly from local boats and producers nationwide, enabling them to sell the best quality seafood at fair prices in their wholesale and retail locations.
A thought leader before the phrase was invented, Paul Johnson is a pioneer in the sustainable seafood business, as evidenced by his 2007 book 'Fish Forever: The Definitive guide to Understanding, Selecting, and Preparing Healthy, Delicious, and Environmentally Sustainable Seafood'.
Monterey Fish Market in supplies seafood to some of the nation's most celebrated chefs, from Alice Waters, Thomas Keller, and Michael Mina to Todd English, Daniel Boulud, and Alain Ducasse and give priority to hiring people who have previously been involved in some aspect of the culinary world.
