American Unagi is an aquaculture company that grows and processes American eel for the American sushi, restaurant, and retail markets. All of the company's eels are locally sourced as juveniles from a unique coastal Maine fishery that is responsibly managed by the Maine Department of Marine Resources and Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission. American Unagi grows its eels to maturity using land-based recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS).
American Unagi currently operates out of the Center for Cooperative Aquaculture in Franklin, ME and will be expanding production to its new facility in Waldoboro, ME in 2020. This new state of the art 27,000 sq. ft facility will be able to grow and process 240 metric tons of American eel per year.
Direct overnight shipment is available for small orders of 25lbs and below. American Unagi serves all of the continental US, but is currently unable to ship live product to the State of California and U.S. Territories.
