Specializing in Quality Canned Albacore Tuna

Captain Fricke has specialized in selling the highest quality tuna and salmon out of the port of Westport WA during the last 20 years. He has recently entered the canned tuna market with the high quality custom canned albacore tuna that migrates to the US West coast each summer. Prior to entering the custom canned market, Captain Fricke sold most of his catch of tuna and some of his catch of salmon directly to customers that came to his boat at the docks in Westport WA.
