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."


Experience working in a fish market setting is preferred, but we are happy to train a motivated candidate. A passion for local seafood and sustainability (from seafood sourcing and packaging) is required. We are a fast-growing locally owned business with plenty of room for career growth and development.


SoPo Seafood is a locally owned and operated Maine Seafood Wholesaler and Fish Market based in Biddeford and South Portland, Maine. We source and supply high-quality local and sustainable fresh seafood for discerning seafood enthusiasts, home cooks, professional chefs, and restaurants in Maine and beyond.
