Oceans 97 is a National Minority Owned Company. Owner and president, two-time Super Bowl Champion and former New England Patriots defensive lineman Jarvis Green, started in the shrimp business soon after his retirement from the NFL in 2010. Since then, Green has become a leader in educating people about the health benefits of a diet rich in protein by using fresh foods and natural ingredients.
Oceans 97 shrimp first entered into the shrimp industry as a wholesale distributor of shrimp in partnership with companies such as Dole & Bailey (founded in 1850). Within a few years, Oceans 97 experienced rapid growth and distribution of their products all across the United States.
In July 2017, Oceans 97 launched a retail line of value-added shrimp and sauces that debuted on QVC. Oceans 97 frozen products just came to an end of a 2-year promotion with Stop & Shop and Giant Food locations. The shrimp was in 730 retail stores from the Mid-Atlantic to Maine. The 2-year promotion was the first of its kind to offer a value-added domestic shrimp ready to cook. Oceans 97 has also been working with Whole Foods selling fin fish.
