We are also the top rank supplier of pacific saury for both Korea and northern Europe. Our vast customer base includes manufacturers in China, Korea, Indonesia, North America, Europe, South Africa, and Mauritius. Our access to these markets allows boat owners to focus on catches while this team manages the buy/sell relationships.
