The Story of Seafood Producers Cooperative

Remember this picture from Co-op Month 2016? It features some of the hardworking, talented fishermen who own the Seafood Producers Cooperative! This co-op is North America’s oldest, highly-successful fishermen’s cooperative, founded over 70 years ago by halibut fishermen in Seattle, Washington. Membership in the Seafood Producers Cooperative grew over the years into a co-op of over 575 fishermen providing the highest quality fish to dinner plates around the world.
