Fishing and Processing

Astoria Pacific Seafoods processes sardines and anchovies from June to October.

Our fleet of boats harvests fish in the Northern Pacific Ocean, and delivers the product to the processing plant within hours. At the plant, the fish are packaged in polylined boxes and blast frozen. Then the product is palletized, stretch-wrapped, and shipped to cold storage, where it remains until delivery.

For a full breakdown of the fishing and processing method, see Production.


Astoria Pacific Seafoods' sardines are Pacific Sardine species Sardinops sagax. The sardines' sizes vary daily. For an update on current size availability, contact us.

Sardines are sold blast frozen in 10kg (22.04 lb) boxes.

Sardines are typically sold blast frozen. Sales of fresh sardines must be arranged prior to fishing.
