Above all else, we are two seafood lovers with a passion for conserving our oceans. 

 Current Management

Arman started managing The Fish Counter in February of 2021, he was trained by Mike and Rob over a period of 3 months to ensure a smooth transition. "Over the past months I learned a lot about fish and the business. We have great customer who supported us through the transition and continue to do so. I continue to use the same product and suppliers Mike and Rob had already put in place, the quality of our fish and food means a lot to me and the Main St community. I'll always be honest with the customers that come through the door and try my best to answer your questions. If I don't know the answer I'll 100% have it the next time you come in."
