Black Women in Seafood: Seafood Markets, Shops & Storefronts

Black Women in Seafood: Seafood Markets, Shops & Storefronts

The sad reality of the past two years is that a large number of Black-owned businesses closed, including businesses owned by Black women. This is a curated list of remaining businesses that could be found online, fully functioning and owned solely by or in partnership with Black women. Businesses with an asterisk by the name are legacy or heritage businesses that are either family-owned and owned for decades. You will find seafood and fish markets, but also grocery stores that carry fresh fish. 

As a word of warning. If you google Black-owned seafood or other types of food businesses, check carefully to verify, because there are many businesses identifying as Black-owned and they are not.
