Sole Source Acquires Lee Fish USA

  (UNITED STATES, 3/7/2023)

Sole Source Capital LLC, an industrial-focused private equity firm, announced today that it has acquired Lee Fish USA (“Lee”), a premium importer and value-added distributor of fresh and frozen seafood.

This transaction marks Sole Source’s 40th investment since inception in 2016 and its third platform investment in the foodservice distribution space. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The Lee Fish brand is recognized around the world as a prime source for premium-quality chilled seafood.

Founded in 2001, Lee Fish sources more than 220 premium seafood species from a diverse base of suppliers, including from wild fisheries and farms across the globe. The company has relationships and semi-exclusive arrangements in highly sought-after regions including New Zealand, Australia, and Japan.

The company operates out of a strategically-located facility less than one mile from Los Angeles International Airport, which allows for best-in-class turnaround times from ocean-to-table and a reputation as a premier provider of high-quality, fresh seafood.
