Moby Rick's Seafood is a family-owned and operated fish and seafood market located on Lake Avenue in Saratoga Springs. Their mission is to provide customers in the area with truly fresh and sustainable fish and seafood.
A Fisherman-Owned and Operated Market
Moby Rick’s Seafood was established in 2012 by Rick Lofstad Jr., who is a 3rd generation Norwegian-American fisherman. With help from fellow pioneering entrepreneur Sara Stacy, he formed the first fully functional "Specialty Seafood Dockside-Style Fish & Seafood Market" in the area that is owned and run by fishermen.
Featuring a combined 50+ years of Northern & Southern Atlantic fishing experience, the company catches a broad spectrum of specialty fish varieties. Not only that, but they practice only sustainable open water short trawl and rod and reel fishing methods, which helps prevent common fish from being overharvested.
From Boat to Table
What makes Moby Rick’s Seafood special is that they catch and sell their fish directly to their customers, partners, and friends in the industry. A large portion of Moby Rick's seafood is supplied on a daily and weekly basis from their own boats that operate at the Long Island Fisheries. They also source fish from commercial rod and reel fishing vessels in New England, seafood brokers in Boston, M.A., and the New Fulton Fish Market.
In addition to their major stores in Saratoga Springs and Hudson, NY, Moby Rick's provides fresh fish and seafood to New York and Capital Region farmers' markets, from Union Square in NYC to Saugerties, Rhinebeck, Chestertown, Bolton Landing, Lake George, and other locations.
