Established in 2015, Blue Harvest Fisheries, LLC blue harvest logo_SCharvests, processes, and distributes premium Atlantic Sea Scallops, Swordfish, Tuna, Cod, Flatfish and other premium seafood products. The company’s CEO, Jeff Davis, has achieved high standards of food qualityand greater product traceability by vertically integrating the Company through acquisition. Blue Harvest Fisheries sources 90% of its seafood from Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)-certified fisheries, and all of its production facilities are Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level 3 certified, meaning the company meets highest industry standards for quality and food safety.

In 2016, Blue Harvest acquired two seafood processing plants in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Blue Harvest’s Marine Services division boasts a 15-vessel fleet BlueHarvestBoat_scthat has operations in Newport News, Virginia and Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Eight of those vessels were gained in 2015 when Blue Harvest acquired the Peabody Corporation, an established Newport News Seafood Industrial Park business. Their location at 675 Jefferson Avenue continues to be managed by some of the original Peabody family, offering many years of experience in scalloping and the seafood industry. The Newport News port serves as a safe haven from colder, northern temperatures and offers the freshest seafood from the Atlantic Ocean.
