CSUMB Students of 'Applied Logistics for Vege/Fruits' visit Del Mar Seafood’s In

On March 29th, 2018, Students of BUS 437 visited Del Mar Seafoods to see firsthand the logistics of seafood, including squid and various types of fish, from receiving to processing, packing, cooling, storage, and outbound shipments. Del Mar Seafoods is a vertically integrated fishing company in Watsonville, CA, that owns and operates fishing vessels in California and Oregon.

Del Mar Seafoods is a family-run operation with over forty years of fishing and seafood processing experience. During the tour, Randy Roberts of Del Mar Seafoods showed the students how the anchovies are brought in, processed, and prepared for shipment for export. He also explained various logistics and operations that are involved, including personnel, equipment, and food safety. Other than enthusiastic students, also present were Del Mar Seafoods' Joe Roggio, and professors, Dr. Scott Fausti (Agribusiness) and Dr. Gary Schneider (Accounting), accompanied by Dr. Sumadhur Shakya (Operations). The participants of the tour are grateful to Monica Galligan from the School of Natural Sciences at CSUMB for making this class tour possible.
