About Us
Tre-Fin is a small, dedicated day boat fishing operation based in Ilwaco Washington. We started as albacore fishers (we're still the only registered Day Boat Tuna fisher in the region), bringing hook and line-caught juvenile Pacific albacore back to port within 24 hours for processing in our own facility.

In 2018, we outfitted our boat, the F/V Opportunaty, with longline gear and consistently catch black cod, several species of rockfish, petrale sole, ling cod, halibut and skate in Oregon and Washington waters. Our mission is to use sustainable methods to upend the way the industry operates and deliver the highest-quality, traceable seafood from healthy stocks directly to eaters through our CSF.

Some of our whole (and processed) fish is sold fresh, but the studies around frozen fish being a better option--for fisheries, fishers, the environment and eaters--mean most of our product is immediately flash frozen and sold in that form. We hope to shift seafood industry practices by proving the viability of this model.
Practices
We deliver the highest-quality, traceable seafood available, and are committed to using sustainable fishing practices to upend the way the industry operates.
Our small team brings juvenile Pacific albacore and healthy seasonal groundfish stocks (black cod, halibut, ling cod, rockfish, petrale sole, skate wing) back to port within 24 hours. We then cut those fish, one at a time, in our certified processing facility.

We use these day boat methods to produce our fish:

● We handle each fish individually, bleeding it immediately upon landing and immersing it in an ice & salt water surry.
● After cooling, each fish is packed in ice and brought back to the dock within 24 hours of being caught.
● Fresh fish are offloaded and brought to our processing facility (also in port) where they are hand cut in-house, one at a time.
● Portioned fish are vacuum-packed and flash frozen immediately, capturing their best quality.
