Welcome to R&D Seafood

In 1968, Raymond and Doris Charest started R & D Seafood as a local retail and wholesale seafood market. R & D Seafood has become a family tradition as the second generation of Charests continues the family run and owned business. Providing the best quality seafood to the Blackstone Valley area is something in which R & D Seafood takes pride.

We receive deliveries of the highest quality fish and shellfish every day to keep our promise of providing you with the best seafood that New England's and the world's oceans have to offer. Here at R & D Seafood we take the time to hand cut all of our fresh fish to provide you, the customer, with a high-quality, boneless product. Additionally, no chemicals or preservatives are ever used in our processing, and we adhere to all federal HACCP standards and guidelines.

Customer satisfaction is our number one priority.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be glad to help you make the perfect choice when selecting your seafood. You can even find some of our favorite customers' recipes on our website.
