A commitment to responsible fishing practices is evidenced by our certification in the Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) and other sustainable fisheries programs.

OUR STORY

John Boggs, the President and Co-Founder of Deep Sea Fisheries began fishing in Alaska as a deckhand at age eleven. That first summer was the beginning of a life of fishing ventures encompassing fisheries operations both in Alaska and internationally. From this humble beginning, with an entrepreneur's spirit, he has participated in fisheries that are now mainstays in the Bering Sea and beyond. John and his partners were the first to fish a newly Americanized Alaskan pollock fishery with the vessel Arctic Trawler. Outside of the US, they imported shrimp and langostinos from Chile in the early 1980's. After traveling to the Soviet Union and exploring distant king crab fishing prior to Perestroika, John was one of the first to send catcher processors to the newly opened Russian king crab fishery. Deep Sea Fisheries continues their involvement in Alaska and Washington fishing operations.
