Our family, the Larsens, has been catching and selling fish on Martha's Vineyard for generations.
Danny Larsen opened Edgartown Seafood on a clear spring day in 1987. But both he and his family's relationship with the sea has stretched back for centuries.
Dan'l Larsen, Danny's paternal grandfather, first landed on Martha's Vineyard in the early on a merchant sailing schooner from Norway that made an emergency stop for repairs. Dan'l, like his descendants, immediately fell in love with the Island.. Years later he returned with his wife, and together they raised five children here, including three sons, Bjarne, Dagbart and Danny's father, Louis.
Louis and his brothers became famous local fisherman on Martha's Vineyard, called the Lucky Larsen's for their record-breaking catches of swordfish. During this time, the Island economy was heavily reliant on fishing and farming, And the Larsen family's boats, the Christine and Dan, the Chilmark Sword and the Chilmark Voyager, were imposing landmarks on Menemsha Harbor.
Danny continued his father's tradition as a commercial fisherman, fishing out of Menemsha Harbor for swordfish up and down the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico. As he continued to commercially fish, his father embarked on the next chapter of the Larsen's relationship with the sea by opening Larsen's Fish Market in Menemsha in 1969.
As Larsen's became an Island Institution, Danny continued to fish commercially into the 1980's. When Danny was ready to settle down, he again followed in the family tradition by opening his own fish market, where he continues to use his decades of experience to source and sell the freshest, highest quality seafood for customers from around the world.
Today Danny runs the fish market with his son, Daniel, who shares his commitment to sourcing and selling the finest quality fish available.
