CAPT. TIM RIDER

Tim has over 15 years of experience in commercial fishing and working in the wholesale seafood industry. Considered a “craft-fishermen,” he is connected with other players in the seafood industry throughout the country, including other fishermen who sell their catch directly to consumers.

Tim has been described as a “renegade” in the commercial fishing community and has been featured in a documentary called “Last Man Fishing.” For decades, he has been outspoken in the politics of the fisheries and has helped call to question the ethics of the seafood industry and its impact on small-scale fishing throughout America.  

Tim, along with his business partner Kayla, manages all operations on land and sea. He is the primary captain and owner of our vessel F/V Finlander II, a 47-foot LeBlanc.
