The "Atlantic Sea Scallop" (Placopecten magellanicus) market continues to grow each year. In fact, New Bedford, MA has been the highest valued fishing port in the United States since 2000, mostly due to the landings of fresh North Atlantic sea scallops. As forward thinker's, we built and operate our own two scallop vessels, the "Patriots" and the "Raiders". In addition to owning our own boats, we utilize the daily scallop auction to source our products. However with prices of scallops continuously changing it is very important to solidify a relationship with a company that has the ability to harvest its own product without relying on others. In 2006 we refined our own fresh scallop program which continues to grow at a rapid pace. We hand grade all scallops within our HACCP certified facility in order to insure proper handling and timely delivery to every customer. Many of our customers take advantage of our ability to customize a program that best suites their needs. We combine exceptional service with competitive pricing making Tichon Seafood the supplier of choice.
