Sells to wholesalers, Fulton Fish Market , now other regional distributors, own bait company. This is a traditional fishing business which has expanded over the years to multiple species and to the bait company. Squid is a primary fish caught and is primarily used for bait. Multiple freezers used by the Better Bait Co. enable them to successfully operate that business. The FV Ocean Fresh was purchased to better enable them to process the bait on board as it has built in room and facilities for processing. This will greatly improve the operations- enabling them to stay out fishing longer while simultaneously processing the bait. Shown here with Doug Asofsky, EVP Lending, LIDC & Roz Goldmacher, LIDC CEO.
