Fresh Since 1937

It’s more than just fish. It’s decades of finding the finest catches and crafting the most delicious marinades.

The First Catch

It’s not every day a broken-down truck creates a company that would last 84 years and counting, but that’s exactly where our history begins.

A story that’s truly as unique as our flavors. When the truck of a local fisherman broke down in Motley, MN, he didn’t know what to do with his catch. So, he traded it with local farmer and logger Ed Morey for a load of corn. Within a year, Ed built his first smokehouse for his fish business and the customer base quickly expanded into Milwaukee and Chicago. When his son, Loren, joined the company in 1964, even more expansion began, and Morey’s was soon enjoyed at dinner tables across the US as it still is today.

Beyond our masterful marinades and fine catches, Morey’s has also led the charge in commitment to responsible, sustainable practices within our industry. Morey’s is an active member of the National Fisheries Institute and works to make the organization a leading advocate for ensuring a safe, responsible, and sustainable supply of seafood. We still are dedicated to Ed Morey’s original vision: Providing a delicious, easy-to-enjoy array of fish and seafood, wherever you live, however you like it.

Fine Fish. Fantastic Taste.

We stop at nothing to make sure you enjoy the finest catches and most delicious marinades possible.

We maintain a state-of-the-art processing facility where quality is our main goal, and we work closely with suppliers all over the world in an effort to find the highest quality fish and seafood products to process and value-add for our customers. With help from FDA, BRCGS, and HACCP guidelines and procedures, and constant safety monitoring and training, you can be assured that our products are safely made and are completely worry-free. We provide a wide variety of products from several species of value-added fish and seafood.

Storied Flavors. Responsible Practices.

At Morey’s, we feel it’s our duty to help protect our oceans and their inhabitants.

At Morey’s, we feel it’s our duty to help protect our oceans and their inhabitants. We are committed to the rigorous standards that define the highest levels of sustainability certification, to ensure consumer trust in and loyalty to both Morey’s and our retail partners. A big part of that is a dedication to environmentally responsible aquaculture practices. We carefully choose our suppliers to ensure they are highly reputable and act in accordance with all regulations developed for sourcing fish.

Nearly all our wild-caught seafood is sourced from suppliers certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) – the preeminent organization dedicated to promoting sustainable, wild-caught seafood and guarding against overfishing – or an equivalent. Equivalent programs certifying our suppliers include the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) and the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute’s (ASMI) Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) model.

Where MSC-certified suppliers do not exist, we work to develop Fishery Improvement Projects (FIP). FIPs bring together industry groups to improve fishing practices, monitor progress, and equip fishery management with the resources needed for MSC certification.

Today, the GAA Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) is the world’s leading independent aquaculture certification program. Morey’s sources aquaculture raw material rated at the BAP 4-star level whenever possible.

The British Retail Consortium’s Global Standards (BRCGS) is an internationally recognized mark of food safety and quality. This certification is achieved by undertaking a third-party audit against standard requirements by an accredited certification body. Nearly all our products are processed in our BRCGS-certified Motley, Minnesota facility. The remaining products are processed according to equally high standards near the sourcing location, to maintain quality. 

You may have questions about eating farmed fish vs. wild fish such as salmon. At Morey’s we believe in providing our consumers with the necessary information in order to make the best decision for you and your family. We sell both quality farmed (Atlantic) salmon and wild (Keta or Pink) salmon.

Ocean-farmed salmon and wild salmon are able to co-exist within the salmon food production market, and are differentiated by price, taste, and texture. Ocean-farmed salmon are neither an economical nor environmental threat to wild salmon. Salmon farming is a safe and eco-friendly answer to the worldwide demand for fresh salmon year-round. The industry goes to great lengths to protect the environment and natural sea life from any farming impacts.

We’re continually refining our sustainability goals, to keep maximizing packaging recyclability and decreasing our environmental impact as much as possible. Additionally, our products are packed for shipping and storage in the most-efficient manner possible, further reducing carbon emissions.
