About Pacific Seafood

The Pacific Seafood Group is a family-owned group of seafood companies based in Portland , Ore. The company processes West Coast product from Alaska to Mexico and owns and operates key distribution centers in Washington, Oregon, California, Texas, Nevada and Utah . The Pacific Seafood Group has worldwide strategic partnerships that provide for efficiently importing and exporting of product. Frank M. Dulcich and his son, Dominic, started the Pacific Seafood Group in 1941 as a small, fresh seafood retail counter operation. Throughout the years, Pacific Seafood expanded operations to meet customer needs and to keep pace with a growing market. Today, under the leadership of Frank Dulcich's namesake and grandson, Pacific Seafood performs all operations from dock to dinner table. In 1983, Pacific Seafood purchased its first fish processing plant in Warrenton, Ore. That plant, located on the mouth of the Columbia River , is one of the most active fishing ports on the west coast, processing Dungeness crab, cold water shrimp, ground fish and salmon. Over the past two decades, the Pacific Seafood Group has swiftly expanded, opening new markets and processing facilities. Since 1983 Pacific Seafood has grown from one processing plant and one distribution facility to more than 30 operating companies. As the Pacific Seafood Group continues to grow, it does so with the commitment to servicing customers efficiently with consistent and direct access to a supply of high quality products. Focused on improving the environment and protecting local jobs, Pacific Seafood has implemented several goals for its processing plants, including improving water quality, preserving both annual and seasonal jobs, and working with city, state, county and federal government officials to ensure these goals are met. Pacific Seafood employs more than 1,800 people in the U.S. and focuses on continued growth while increasing the opportunities with its fishing vessels, customers, team members and strategic partners. In 2003, Pacific Seafood built a state-of-the-art processing and distribution plant in Clackamas , Ore.
