CleanFish is a company, an aspiration and a movement that brings great tasting fish to the market from artisans who carefully cultivate or harvest with a depth of tradition, stewardship, and respect for the communities and precious ecosystems in which we all eat and live. This passion began with Tim's first aquaculture operation in 1974, and the guiding principles of health, environmental stewardship, and socially responsible business practices had driven him for the next 3 decades.
