After 2 years of seeing huge demand for fresh seafood selling at the Saratoga's Farmers Market and learning the blessed news that he was soon going to be a father to his daughter Joy, Captain Rick Lofstad founded Moby Rick's Seafood in 2012.
The Lofstad family has produced over 6 million pounds of fish annually, roughly 1/6 of New York State’s finfish production. Captain Moby Rick now owns two fishing trawlers with another three vessels being owned by other members of the Loftsad family. The Lofstad family currently produces over 1 million pounds of seafood annually.
As Bubba Gump would say “I Knows shrimp.” Captain Moby Rick knows fish. He formed the only New York State fisherman‘s co-op and managed Inlet Seafood of Montauk, managing 90% of New York State’s seafood. He sat on the New York State Fishery Management Council as a representative of New York State fisherman for eight years. Capt. Rick was the largest exporter in the USA of finfish to Spain and Japan, exporting over 12,000,000 pounds annually. He is also presently the owner of Pura Vida Fisheries, servicing in 25 farmers markets weekly.
Moby Rick's seafood, with two new retail locations in Saratoga springs and Clifton Park, offers fresh and frozen seafood from all over the world. If it’s available we can get it. Fresh staple and seasonal seafood is brought in three times per week. If you’re looking for that rare item, we can bring it in for you specially. We are currently launching our online delivery service. Your sea goodies can now be delivered the next day by UPS, FedEx or the Post Office. If you live within 10 miles of our father store, and place a minimum order of $25, we will even deliver it ourselves.
