History and Mission

"You're not just buying seafood, you're buying confidence."

Sea Lion International was founded in 1992 during the early stages of the aquaculture expansion in Asia. As the long-term potential for farm-raised shrimp became evident, Sea Lion capitalized on this, establishing itself as a consistent and reliable supplier to both retail and foodservice companies. Reliability is crucial to success in the seafood business, and our global network plus time-tested delivery methods enable us to give our customers top-quality product time and time again.

Our mission is to empower our customers with our accumulated knowledge from decades of international trade. We consider our customers to be our partners, sharing in the development of the international seafood market. With them, we work to cultivate and enhance the crucial components of a well-executed import program. We focus on variables such as environmentalism, sustainability, quality control, packaging, logistics, regulatory issues, and distribution, providing superior farm to table-top performance.

Sea Lion strives to continue its success and enable our customers to leverage our combined skills and knowledge to build a strong seafood program.
