An International Seafood Purveyor

Nova Delivers the Freshest Seafood Often Within 24 Hours of Catch.

Nova’s three strategic locations: Portland, Maine; Maritime Canada; and Hafnarfjörður, Iceland, put us at the hub of vibrant fisheries and diverse shipping routes, which is great news for our customers.

At the Hub—Nova Sources International Seafood

Why does being at the hub matter? Portland, Maine is the first major stop coming south from Maritime Canada so Nova customers receive the top of the catch, every single day. Our Icelandic facility is just a 10-minute drive from the Keflavik Airport, and this close proximity allows us to deliver product within 24 hours to U.S. cities serviced by IcelandAir: Boston, New York City, Newark, Washington, DC, Orlando, Minneapolis, Denver, and Seattle.

Here’s a typical day at our Icelandic facility:

  • 9:00am EST - Icelandic auction occurs based on hails/estimates given by boats currently fishing and still out at sea. 
  • 4:00pm EST- Boats land at various Icelandic ports, and fish is brought to our facility. 
  • 5:00am EST (next day) - The fish is processed and packaged to exact customer specifications. 
  • 10:00am EST - The fish is transported 10 minutes away to Keflavik Airport for international shipment. 
  • 1:00pm EST  - Flights depart for shipments to various cities across the United States. 
  • 7:00pm EST - All U.S. flights have landed and product is ready for distribution.
