This is a great opportunity to learn about the fascinating world of Maine Seafood. Get hands-on experience handling and learning about Gulf of Maine seafood such as bluefin tuna, locally harvested oysters, and kelp.


Our Mission: "We want to see Maine’s seafood industry thrive. Many coastal communities around Maine rely on the seafood industry – from small mussel and oyster farms to lobstermen and ground fishermen. We see partnering and supporting these local operations as the best way to ensure their prosperity for many years to come."


Our neighborhood Raw/Oyster Bar is open year-round, with peaks during the summer and holiday season. We are looking for a motivated Food Prep/Line Cook to support our small but growing menu. The menu showcases the stunning seafood the Maine Coast has to offer. We are a fast-growing locally owned business with plenty of room for career growth and development.


SoPo Seafood is a Maine Seafood Market, Raw Bar, and Seafood Wholesaler based in South Portland, Maine. We source and supply high-quality seasonal, sustainable and local fresh seafood for our restaurant and clients.
