Scandia Seafood – Rockland, Maine
Scandia Seafood: Purchased by ANANIA & Associates Investment Company LLC in November 1998, Scandia Seafood LLC was a shrimp processing company, which was one of only two operating in the State of Maine at that time. A&A successfully moved the company into additional products line using IQF (Individual Quick Freezing) technology. One such product was whole lobster and lobster tails, which were well received by the market. Unfortunately, regulatory restrictions on shrimp fishing along with the 9/11 attack seriously impacted the company. The operation was eventually terminated in June 2002.
