Lusamerica Fish is a family-owned and operated company founded in 1975 by Fernando Frederico and his wife, Ana. The company is headquartered in Morgan Hill, California, just south of the San Francisco Bay Area. Lusamerica also has a processing facility in Fife, Washington and a distribution facility in Vernon, California.
Beginning as a small importer of specialty foods, Lusamerica 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 team of over 250 people manages a supply chain that serves the entire West Coast of the United States and has the capacity to serve national accounts.
Our plant in Morgan Hill, California 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 capacity.
In 2010, Lusamerica set up a processing and distribution facility in Fife, Washington to serve the Northwest region of the country. This 83,000 square foot facility offers a wide range of processing options, freezing capacity and distribution throughout the region.
Our Vernon, California distribution facility allows us to efficiently serve Southern California and Arizona. We maintain our own fleet of trucks, which operate from all our locations and serve national accounts via contract carriers.
