About Us

Cardon is a family owned fresh seafood importer

Our Fresh Seafood Story

Serving fresh seafood since 1990.

Cardon was founded in 1990 by Don and Carla Newell. At first, these two young entrepreneurs would pick up and deliver boxes of fresh seafood up the east coast of Florida themselves. Over the past 30+ years, Cardon has grown into one of the largest importers of Trinidad tunas.

Our Core Values

Quality, Quality, Quality! Wild caught fresh seafood can be a very tricky game. We want to be known as a company with integrity. If you purchase a #1 tuna, you can rest assured that you will receive that top quality all year long.
