J DeLuca Fish Company History

J DeLuca Fish Company, Inc. was started in 1977, John DeLuca, its president and CEO, is the grandson of a fisherman who immigrated to America in 1915. At the age of seventeen his grandfather began his fishing career in the small fishing hamlet of San Pedro.. a community that was to become the largest fishing port of the world.

On early foggy mornings when John’s grandfather returned to port with his catch, John, then a young boy of six, would greet his grandfather with the hope of receiving a fresh tuna or bass to sell.

Tutored by his own father, Sam J. DeLuca, John, at an early age soon learned the business of buying and selling fish. After working for his father for several years he began his own fish business, always under the watchful eyes of his father and grandfather, who lived to the age of 106.

Today, J DeLuca Fish Company specializes in fresh and frozen sea food products. The daily catch of sardines, mackerel and squid are still delivered to the same fish wharf where John’s grandfather would “tie up” to unload his daily catch.

With almost a hundred years of experience behind it, our company strives to provide its customers with the finest fresh and frozen seafood.

With the same dedication and determination of Grandpa and Dad, we continue our endeavour to achieve excellence in serving you, our customers.
