Coastline is a B2B Seafood Marketplace that connects commercial seafood producers to restaurants and retail.
The company itself was started with a simple question: why don’t more businesses source direct from fishers, harvesters, and aquaculture farmers? Asking this question revealed some unfortunate facts: seafood is often held in storage for weeks, is shipped overseas and back, changes hands multiple times, and is often misrepresented.
We want to help change this. Since launching in 2016, Coastline has been the platform-of-choice to source seafood from vetted producers. Hundreds of top chefs use our one-stop shop to source fresh, live, and frozen seafood from the world’s top producers.
Our plan is to build a global service marketplace & procurement platform that connects B2B buyers to seafood harvesters from anywhere in the world.
Coastline is founded by Robert Kirstiuk and Joseph Lee. They are a Forbes 30 under 30 Honourees (E-Commerce, 2018) and the company has been accelerated and supported through The Next Big Thing (YVR), Techstars Seattle and the Thiel Fellowship. Coastline Market has offices both in Seattle and Vancouver.
