Ocean Select Seafood is a family owned and operated company located in the heart of South Louisiana. Our foundation is a legacy of success in the seafood industry, a powerful set of values and a lot of love for what we do.

Bought by the Guidry family in 1991, Ocean Select is a natural extension of our original – and still very successful – family business, Guidry’s Catfish, which was founded in 1976. Ocean Select gave us the opportunity to offer more products, expand our production capacity and grow our service area. What began with just a few employees and a single delivery truck when we first purchased Ocean Select has grown into a large business capable of producing over 60,000 pounds of product a day.

Our passion since 1991 is to build strong customer relationships through honest business practices, a knowledgeable, friendly and helpful customer service team, and outstanding products at competitive prices.

Ocean Select produces some of the best tasting seafood Louisiana has to offer, including our well-known brand, Louisiana Select Foods, a trusted name in frozen seafood. Whether its Gulf shrimp, Louisiana grown crawfish or U.S. farm raised catfish, our premium seafood products are the freshest around.

We offer products tailored to the retail as well as the food service industries, and currently serve over 1500 customers in the Southeast region of the United States. Our vision is to continue expanding across the country by reinvesting in our people, products and innovative technology.
