As a company based in Oregon, FishPeople's mission is to provide high-quality, environmentally and socially conscious Pacific Northwest seafood products. FishPeople grew from the partnership between Duncan Berry and Kipp Baratoff. Berry, once one of the youngest commercial fishermen captains on the Oregon Coast, and Baratoff, a veteran of finance, green real estate, and natural resource management bonded over concern for the state of coastal fisheries. They saw how overfishing had reduced many fish stocks and how a majority of the catch, jobs, and nutrition were being shipped overseas. In 2012, they founded FishPeople to “re-imagine North America’s relationship to the sea”. Today, their commitment to transparency and passion for sustainability contribute to restoring resources and habitats and fueling American livelihoods by working with independent, American fishermen.
