“Unless you catch your own, there is no better way to sample exquisitely fresh seafood than ordering from Browne Trading.” – New York Times.

Located in the heart of Portland, Maine’s commercial fishing district, Browne Trading was established by prominent seafood epicure Rod Browne Mitchell in 1991. Continuing his family’s long tradition in the seafood trade, Browne Trading is nationally renowned for sourcing pristine quality, fresh seafood.

Caviar Importers

Browne Trading has a legacy as the premier provider of fine caviar in the United States. This legacy began with the direct importation of caviar from the Caspian Sea, which included wild osetra, sevruga, and of course, the famous beluga sturgeon caviar.

As the wild Caspian caviar market became restricted due to the overfishing of sturgeon, Browne Trading turned to farmed alternatives. Working closely with aquacultures and biologists, Browne Trading began importing farmed sturgeon caviar in the mid-2000s.

Working directly with the farms ensures the traceability and quality, allowing Browne to co-brand. Browne Trading is the only company in the United States that co-brands with producers of caviar. We work closely with sturgeon farms in Belgian, Italy, Israel, China, and the U.S.A. Currently, we import osetra sturgeon, siberian sturgeon, hybrid sturgeon, and American white sturgeon caviars.

Smokehouse On-site

Our Portland headquarters includes an on-site specialty smokehouse where we handcraft our smoked salmon, fish, and select shellfish. Browne Trading’s Smokemaster has taken an age-old food preservation method and turned it into an art form. Innovative ideas and unique flavor combinations result in the most delicate and delicious smoked seafood.
