Seattle Fish Company abruptly migrates

By master · November 24th, 2009 · 3 Comments

The Seattle Fish Company (112 N. 36th St) closed just as mysteriously as it had opened in Fremont less than one year ago – with white butcher paper in its windows.  The sign left on the door reads:

Seattle Fish Company is moving to a new location which we will announce when plans are final. 

In the meantime please visit our West Seattle store at 4435 California Ave SW

Seattle Fish Co.

Neighbors say the market, which ships fresh fish and seafood from around the world, quickly and quietly left about a week and a half ago.  Calls left at the West Seattle store have not yet been returned.  We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything more.

(Thanks to Scott and Paul for the tips.)

    How strange! I loved that place. Hopefully they'll mysteriously re-open in Fremont.

    With fish selling as high as $19 a pound, I am not surprised. The fish business is getting harder and harder, part of climate change and over utilization of the resource I guess.

    Doesn't surprise me. Seems like they picked an awful location within that twilight zone that exists between the Fremont CBD and the Ballard Fred Meyer. It may be an ideal location in another five years, but not now.
