AN HONEST-TO-GOODNESS FAMILY-OWNED SEAFOOD MARKET SERVING SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SINCE 1948.
As a young man working his way through commercial art courses at Los Angeles City College in 1952, Hank Kagawa began working part-time at Fish King. Eventually, in 1956, the enterprising Kagawa and his uncle, Harry Kuruma, took over ownership of the market which consisted of a small storefront with all of two old fish cases. The store was a two-man operation back then, and Harry and Hank did everything, struggling for a few lean years until business picked up. In l968 when Harry passed away, Hank took over the helm and made changes and new innovations that proved to serve the business well. With the coming of huge supermarkets and corporate domination, we are now one of the very few remaining independent specialty fish markets from the early years. Come in and see why we've stood the test of time!
