SOURCING IS AN ART ~
The Truth is in the Fish!
Whether wild-caught direct from vessels or through one of our seats on the Icelandic or New England fish auctions, the Nova Seafood team expertly sources, prices, and delivers the world’s finest Fresh & Frozen Seafood to the leading retailers and distributors across the United States and Canada.
At the Hub for Quality Seafood Sourcing
An international wholesale seafood distributor, Nova’s three strategic locations in Portland, Maine, Maritime Canada, and Hafnarfjörður, Iceland put us at the hub of vibrant fisheries and diverse shipping routes that allow us to provide our customers with high quality seafood, often within 24 hours of catch.
The expert Nova team procures, processes, and delivers the finest fresh seafood—at competitive prices—to customers across the United States and Canada.
In addition to our full line of fresh seafood, Nova customers rely on us to provide competitively priced, quality frozen seafood sourced from around the world.
Sourcing & Sustainability
Yes, the Nova team buys and sells the finest fish at competitive prices, but it’s important to note that we source from strictly-managed and regulated fisheries, which ensure that fish stocks—both domestic and international—remain bountiful for years to come. Our definition of Sustainability is simple: 'It's taking a population out that doesn't affect the population of the entire ecosystem'. We also understand that others may have different definitions of what it means to be sustainable, and we're okay with that.How We Source Seafood
