We physically move fish for fishermen, maintaining temperature and sanitary conditions. Red’s Best physical control over the chain of custody sets Red’s Best Traceability System apart from software-only traceability solutions.

Red's Best brand of seafood and logistics represent trustworthiness. Trust that your seafood is caught locally, labeled correctly, and subjected to quality controls along its journey to you. Trust that an intelligently minimized "carbon footprint" maintains traceability without undue burden on natural resources. Trust that Red’s Best Traceability adds only value and zero transaction costs between fisherman and seafood buyer.

Anyone concerned about the origins and identity of seafood should ask their local markets and restaurants to carry Red's Best brand seafood.

Fisherman : Tom Dowd

Species : Scup

Fishing Vessel : Equinox

Gear Type : Otter Trawl

Port Landed : Falmouth


From Falmouth, MA. Began fishing in 1970, after serving in the Coast Guard. Has worked for himself all along. Likes to fish in Nantucket Sound, close to home. Once caught a 19th-century corked bottle in the front of Nantucket Harbor that said “to his majesty the king”. Still has it. He believes that the level of risk that fishermen put themselves through to make a living would shock people. Now semi-retired with the risk taking. His day-boat product is very marketable.
