Established in 1996 by tribal charter Suquamish Seafood Enterprises was formed to develop seafood markets for tribal fishermen as well as market the bountiful harvests of geoduck clams that populate the tribe’s surrounding waters.
Suquamish Seafood Enterprises (SSE) is a fully-chartered business entity of the Suquamish Tribe Port Madison Indian Reservation. We are located on the Kitsap Peninsula in the State of Washington in the ancestral home of Chief Sealth also known as Chief Seattle. We carry on the traditional subsistence practices of the Puget Sound. Our reservation borders the west side of Central Puget Sound and this area is home to many fish and shellfish species. Many tribal members harvest these fish and shellfish resources throughout Puget Sound waters.
Established in 1996 by tribal charter SSE was formed to develop seafood markets for tribal fishermen as well as market the bountiful harvests of geoduck clams that populate the tribe’s surrounding waters. It is a benefit for the tribal members via seafood sustainability, subsistence living, and to support the tribal economy as a whole. We have been able to have access to ancestral lifestyle of subsistence life.

What We Do
Suquamish Seafoods Enterprises’ major business is the marketing and selling of Pacific Oysters. Our tribal geoduck harvests an average 500,000 lbs. per harvest year. SSE expanded its product line to include Dungeness crab, Salmon (Chinook, Coho and Chum varieties), Manila Clams, and Oysters. Future expansion plans include culturing of oysters and clams inter-tidally in hopes to benefit both cultured and wild-harvest opportunities. We are looking to diversify and develop markets both internationally and domestically while operating under its own branded product line.
Great selection of fresh local seafood. We love coming here when we are craving for crab and always leave with salmon or cod, whatever their fresh catch happens to be. As other reviews said, the staff is friendly and helpful. The place is clean and now conveniently located next to the gas station. Highly recommend.

Excellent selection. Excellent customer service. Prices are unbeatable. They just opened an amazing retail location right off of HW 305, which is super convenient. I love all the saltwater tanks, wild caught local seafood, and of course, the great service.
