Founded in 1988, Del Mar Seafoods is a family-led business dedicated to upholding the highest standards of quality. For nearly 35 years, we have specialized in premium California calamari.
Our flagship brand, Ocean Angel Brand Calamari, is a testament to our passion and unparalleled dedication to quality – as it remains the most premium brand of California market squid available.
Throughout the years we have harvested and produced other wild caught seafood products and currently have numerous brands underneath the Del Mar Seafoods umbrella. Today, we continue to expand our operations and offer new products and brands to our customers.
I was born the son of a Sicilian immigrant in Monterey, California and started working with my father at his squid production facility at 10 years old. No son could have been blessed with a better father, teacher, coach, and partner. He gave me and the generations who follow a legacy; one of hard work, honesty, integrity, and knowledge of an industry he helped create in the early 1960s.
Del Mar Seafoods is a multi-generational family business and we strive to carry on this family legacy which values honesty above all. That’s our promise from my family to yours. Our word is our bond and our products are our promise.
