About Captain Kidd’s

Located on the pier at King’s Harbor in Redondo Beach, Captain Kidd’s has been a South Bay staple since 1976. Customers can enjoy delicious seafood cooked to order on one of their three patios, or take the seafood home.

Captain Kidd’s provides fresh seafood from local and international waters. In 2012, they received the Local Choice Award in the Fresh Seafood Market category. Captain Kidd’s is committed to working with Seafood for the Future to promote healthy and responsible seafood choices.

 

Seafood for the Future Recommends:

*Items marked with an asterisk indicate that they have been verified by the SFF team via the most recent invoices (8/26/13). Captain Kidd’s sources in season where possible. Because some items may be subject to seasonal and/or market availability, SFF cannot verify every item at the time of each follow up evaluation. Ask their friendly and knowledgable staff to specify where the product is from to get the most up-to-date information about their responsible seafood selection.
