4 Seafood Sales Business Success Stories [2022]
Start A Seafood Sales Business

Starting a frozen food business specializing in seafood is a fantastic business venture.

The global demand for aquatic foods will double in the next few years.

Finfish, pelagic fish, cods, salmonids, crabs, shrimp, krill, prawns, and lobster are among the highly in-demand sea foods.

To start your frozen fish products business, conduct market research to understand the current industry trends. Focus on how each vendor performs and find out the highly in-demand products.

Then, decide to source your frozen seafood from suppliers, or you will do the food processing. Analyze the costs of both options to determine the most optimal. Finally, apply for the food handling permits and licenses, and begin marketing your frozen goods business.
