Holiday Seafood began in 1990 by proprietor Henry Alonso. It is located along the mouth of the Anclote River, giving access to the Gulf of Mexico and its fisheries.
Henry and the company have worked hard over the years, developing relationships with local fishermen to bring the highest quality fish to Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota, Hillsborough, and Pasco Counties. Some of the types of fish that come across the docks at Holiday Seafood are grouper, snapper, porgie, and mahi mahi. Holiday Seafood prides itself in selling only locally caught grouper.
About Our Seafood
Holiday Seafood specializes in locally caught, sustainable seafood harvesting. The fishing boats come directly to our docks. The fish, crab, shellfish or shrimp are unloaded, graded, and weighed on site. Then our processing facility gets to work. With fish products, our staff expertly cleans and fillets what comes in. The fillets are weighed and packaged to fulfill orders from restaurants and other seafood retailers. Our in-house retail shop also keeps fresh fish for purchase, giving our customers the highest restaurant quality seafood products.
Shellfish like oysters and clams are kept live and in the cooler. Holiday Seafood keeps seafood from the Gulf of Mexico away from the freezer.
Products like Blue Crab are kept live in our tanks. Our customers enjoy being able to pick their own crabs to serve to their friends and families.
During Stone Crab Season, October 15th through May 15th, the Stone Crab claws are graded by size and ready for sale to our wholesale partners and retail customers.
About The Owner
Henry has a background in communications. This makes sense to people that have met him. He is energetic, with an outgoing personality. Retail and wholesale customers, as well as fishermen, enjoy doing business with Henry because of his friendliness and fairness. Henry's employees like working at Holiday Seafood because Henry is right there, working beside them. He is a master with a fillet knife while working in the processing center and full of gratitude to customers who come into the retail shop.
A visit to Holiday Seafood can be the highlight of your day when Henry is around.
