Austin Fish Company ...

Award-Winning Leader in Outer Banks Seafood!




Located just a stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean and snuggled next to Jockey's Ridge (the tallest sand dune on the east coast) in Nags Head, North Carolina, you'll find Austin Fish Company, a family owned and operated seafood market.  "We have been in the same business in the same location for over 50 years" says Jimmy Austin, owner of the quaint seafood market. Jim, a true native of the Outer Banks, was always proud to inform you that Austin's is one of the oldest seafood markets on the Outer Banks.

Jimmy was a commercial fisherman on the beach for years before he started his seafood business. "I've been in the seafood business all my life" remarked Jim, "and have served the east coast of the United States from South Florida to New England." Together with wife Sandra and daughter Debbie, the Austin's have proven for years that Austin's offers the freshest seafood available anywhere!

Mr. Austin passed away unexpectedly on October 1, 2010.  He is greatly missed, but his memory will not be forgotten.  The Austin women (Sandra, Debbie, Tiffany and Elly) ... and Jace (grandson), will continue the business without him.  Although he is gone, his presence is remembered and his legacy will carry on through Austin Fish Company.

Austin's ... the best source for fresh fish and shellfish anywhere on the Outer Banks!
