Shipping and Packaging
Island Seafoods uses its high-volume business to leverage reasonable overnight shipping rates from FedEx for the entire continental U.S. Customers in Hawaii can also get overnight shipping for a surcharge of $35. There is also a $35 surcharge for Saturday delivery, which must be placed by Thursday no later than 5pm.
With FedEx overnight delivery, every customer also has the ability to track their shipment online. This FedEx overnight delivery is the standard option with Island Seafoods because the company packages the seafood in specially designed foil-insulated boxes with gel ice designed to keep your seafood frozen for 24 hours. If the seafood arrives while you’re at work and experiences mild thawing during the day, it will be fine so long as you put it in the freezer as soon as you get home. With its processing and shipping service for sport fishing, people who visit Kodiak and catch their own fish during their trip can use Island Seafoods to package and ship their catch back home.

History and Ownership
Founded in 1999, Island Seafoods started out as a small, custom seafood processing business. In 2000, they bought and a suitable seafood processing facility with a new dock and direct access to Kodiak’s waterfront along Cannery Row. In 2003, Island Seafoods was acquired by the Pacific Seafood Group and in 2007 officially changed its name to Pacific Seafood Kodiak. To take advantage of its local heritage and business reputation, the company continues to use the Island Seafoods brand for its retail, custom processing and online business.
Sourcing and Sustainability
Island Seafoods’ policies, practices, and support of sustainable fisheries has earned the company the Marine Stewardship Council certification. This certification requires a thorough third-party audit each year to ensure compliance. Overall, the company emphasizes four qualities in its seafood: quality, freshness, traceability, and sustainability.
Most of the seafood sold on the website is from locally-sourced waters. However, the company’s relationship with Pacific Seafood Group also allows Island Seafoods to sell other types of fish sourced outside of the Gulf of Alaska. By quickly reading through the name and description of the type of fish you’re ordering, it should be obvious whether your chosen seafood is locally-sourced. In fact, each type of fish sold by Island Seafoods includes a general description as well as cooking tips and pairing suggestions.
