Contact Information

For nearly forty years, Seafood Merchants has provided Chicagoland and Southeast Wisconsin’s finest chefs, catering services and retail stores with the freshest and highest quality seafood items available.

As a family run business, Seafood Merchants specializes in providing the ‘personal touch’ and make every effort to insure that their products are not only of the highest quality, but are also handled, packed and delivered with exacting attention to detail. It’s no surprise that they are ‘the chef’s choice’. The same attention and care that goes into preparing your signature dish is the same care that they put into each and every order that leaves their dock.

Customer service is a top priority at Seafood Merchants. When you place an order with their knowledgeable sales staff, you can feel confident that your order will be packed and delivered ‘as ordered’ with no blind substitutions and a minimum of surprises. As the fresh seafood industry is highly dynamic and shipments can be delayed by weather, missed flights or other intangibles, they always contact their clients before shipping if an availability issue arises. Count on their sales staff to be able to suggest an appropriate substitution if an item is temporarily out of stock. If you ever find yourself stumped for a special of the day, they love helping out with timely and seasonal suggestions.
