who is behind pescanova?

Nueva Pescanova Group’s roots began at the Port of Vigo on the Northwest coast of Spain. Over the last 50 years, Pescanova has transformed itself into one of the top fishing and aquaculture companies in the world.

Continuing its global expansion, Nueva Pescanova Group entered the United States market in 1998 when Pescanova USA was created in Miami, Florida. Today, Pescanova USA is one of the top 50 seafood commerce companies in the Americas.

For decades, Pescanova’s customers have been the top priority and everything we do is designed to deliver an exceptional final product: quality, healthy, sustainably sourced seafood that exceeds expectations.
