From ceviche to fresh lobster, Costa Rica is known for the quality of seafood that comes from the waters off the dual coasts of this Caribbean paradise. Our Costa Rica fishery delivers Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Swordfish, Grouper and more.
With two coasts on the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, the quality and variety of seafood coming from Costa Rica is among the best product available in the market today. Tuna, swordfish, grouper, snapper… the freshest catch-of-the-day can be found on the plates of restaurants all over this Caribbean paradise. Our fishery in Costa Rica helps us bring the same freshness shipped same-day to tables in the US.
The Chefs Trading® commitment to responsible and sustainable fishing is exemplified by our Costa Rican fishery. Built on a solid foundation of innovation and commitment to its community, the company got its start by building smaller, fiber-glass bottomed boats that helped local inshore fishermen ply their trade more efficiently. New fishing methods arose and, in response, so did the company’s methods to help fishermen increase their distribution reach and earn better pricing.
Today, the fishery is a leading example of small business at work in Costa Rica. The company continues to build on its own advances in sourcing and logistics while helping to build and support the local infrastructure. Its ability to connect local fisherman to the domestic and international seafood markets is at the very foundation of its success.
