What You Get Before Dawn

What You Get Before Dawn

Our Life on the Docks

Starting the job at dawn every morning makes a difference. It either takes its toll on your sleep or your nightlife. Your choice. But after five generations of getting down to the docks before dawn, you get the hang of it.

One thing that makes it worthwhile is getting your choice of the very best. That’s because the freshest, most flavorful fish that those cold North Atlantic fishermen could find arrive at the Boston Fish Pier at the crack of dawn, too, so we’ve got to be there – it’s just our way. The knowhow we gleaned from four decades trolling Boston’s docks are now used to select the finest seafood from sustainable sources around the world.

As our family grew, so did our business, and nearly 40 years ago the Scola family began making Boston Sword & Tuna the one-stop seafood source we are today. Immigrating from Sicily meant bringing along with them what they knew, and that was seafood.

From the docks of Sicily to the docks of Boston, BST started as a small company selling haddock from a work bench down the Pier, and eventually got a small facility. The idea was so successful that we moved down the road from the Pier to double our facility, and we’ve continued opening more doors to the world beyond.

How to Know When You Know

When we started more than five decades ago, we did this work to supply a few of Boston’s better restaurants and hotels, and eventually grew to supply major supermarkets. Now that airplanes and computers look like they’re here to stay, we thought it would be a good idea to offer the same quality to you as a sea to home online fish market, with speedy delivery right to your door. We want the entire country to experience and have access to the truly fresh, highest quality seafood that we enjoy here in New England.
