Melbourne's finest quality seafood


The Karanikolaou family has been supplying Melbourne with seafood for over 20 years and it's their top quality, reasonable prices, and customer service that keeps people coming back

Tucked away off St Georges Road is one of Preston's best kept secrets: Nationwide Seafoods.

Founded and established by John Karanikolaou in 1999, the family-run wholesale business has grown significantly and, in response to demand, the business has expanded to include a retail space.

"We had a lot of people walking in off the street looking for good quality seafood, and we were wholesalers so we couldn't supply them. So it led us down the path of opening a retail so we can service people in the local area," says Eric Karanikolaou, John's youngest son.

Having worked from the ground up doing everything from opening oysters to cutting fish, and serving customers, after completing his double degree in Business and Marketing, Eric decided to step in and take the reins of the family business in favour of the corporate world, citing that fish, and fishing, is something that's "in the family's blood".

His grandfather, a fisherman on the Greek island of Samos, ensured that his knowledge and passion were well and truly instilled in his son and grandchildren who spent their holidays growing up fishing.

Now 20 years on, Nationwide Seafoods is renowned for their quality product and freshness, supplying seafood to restaurants, cafes, universities, governmental institutions, catering companies and hospitals.
