The team behind the scenes at Wild Seafood Co. is comprised of the most hardworking, dedicated individuals on the West Coast of Florida. We couldn’t ask for a more talented crew. From Chris with the unloading team to Vicky running the day-to-day, every member of our team is a valuable asset whom we are proud to have worn the Wild Seafood Co. shirt.
The right-hand man here at Wild Seafood! Chris is an invaluable member to the team, with a tendency to be a part of every project going on. He enjoys spearfishing in his spare time, and is quite the shot with the gag groupers!
John is our resident retired Xerox technician, who works harder now than ever since he has retired. In addition to his handy-man fix-it-all skills, he is our official Gulf Wild fish tagger and pinfish captain extraordinaire.
With his start as a meat butcher, Rick is skilled with the knife and very knowledgeable about seafood. He keeps the parking lot organized as it can be during offloads with his forklift driving. A long-time Florida resident with a true love for nature and local wild life.
Toni, Adam and Kenny work behind the Wild Seafood scenes to make the work our team does possible.
John is an avid recreational fisherman and even when he’s not on the clock he can still be found down at the dock catching grouper and snook. He is a great new addition to the Wild Seafood team!
Noah is currently running our social media. He has been fishing at the dock since he was 14 years old and waited eagerly to start working when he turned 18. He has now been working at the dock for two years and is going to college for a business degree in marketing.
Jason’s entry into the seafood industry was fueled by his love for spearfishing. He joined Shareholder’s Alliances & helped start the Gulf Wild brand promoting sustainable, domestic and most importantly traceable seafood to support domestic industry here in the Gulf. It wasn’t long before he realized his only next step was to become a commercial fish house. Since October 2011, Wild Seafood has been setting the standard for quality Grouper out of the Gulf of Mexico through the hard work and leadership of Jason.
In 2016 he was recognized by President Obama for being a Champion of Change promoting sustainable seafood. He remains active in almost every aspect of the seafood community, from SEDAR reviews, Advisory Panels, Gulf Council Meetings, to building boats, working with fishermen, Commercial spearfishing and so much more.
Vicky works tirelessly stuck in the office, lovingly termed “The Dungeon,” to make Wild Seafood run smoothly. From billing, permits, and keeping everything running, she does it all with her sidekick Kathy. She compliments Jason’s work by going above and beyond for the Wild Seafood employees and commercial fishermen at the dock, making this truly a family business and a wonderful place to work.
She started her career running a local pharmacy, but as Wild Seafood began to grow, it became evident the dock would require her full attention. She left the pharmacy in 2013 and has been focused solely on Wild Seafood and Don’s Dock.
