CudaCo. Seafood House: The Best Seafood In Charleston

Part fish butchery, part smokehouse, and part prepared, flavorful fare, prepare to expand your palate and challenge your assumptions of traditional seafood. 

Hands down, some of THE best seafood that’s offered in Charleston! You can go in and choose your fresh seafood to take home with you and cook as you please and/or you can enjoy their menu items and let them cook it for you! I’m a big fan of the latter. 𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺’𝘳𝘦 𝘥𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨! In addition, they have a grab & go section where you can pick up things like: seafood dip, oysters, mussels, shrimp…really, they have it all!

Charleston’s Boldest Seafood Experience.

CudaCo. was founded on the idea of revolutionizing how we prepare, use, eat and ultimately think about non-traditional types of seafood (aka “trash” fish, like Barracuda). Our founders, award-winning Chef Shaun Brian and premiere local seafood distributor, Chris John, are passionate about 2 things: sustainable aquaculture and pushing the boundaries of traditional seafood flavors. The mission is simple: become a catalyst for change in the seafood industry and make a true impact on our environment and community.


To provide the local Charleston area with the highest quality seafood, all while shaping the future of the industry so it can be around for the enjoyment of generations to come.


CudaCo.’s founders, Chris and Shaun, met through a love of the ocean. Chris was selling some of the best soft shell crabs in Charleston for over 10 years, when Shaun was buying some for his restaurant downtown they started talking about surfing and sharing their love for all things ocean. Out of this, a concept was born for a unique seafood market that would introduce new flavors, educate the local community on our aquaculture, and most importantly, become a force for progressive change in the industry- traditionally known for waste and pollution.

CudaCo. was born, named after the barracuda, which is widely considered to be a trash fish. Our goal, in line with our mission, is to help make lesser sought after species become the norm. This takes pressure off the fish that are much more popular so it can recover. This style of fishing, coupled with mindful sourcing, make fish a regenerative resource.

Shaun also grew up with a pet barracuda that would live under his dad’s sailboat. They called their Cuda Charlie, and he would go everywhere the boat would go, even hundreds of miles down island. That is until Shaun’s brother, Jeremy, caught him on a trip down to St. Lucia. Fortunately, his likeness can now be found inside the shop thanks to local artist Chris Kemp.
