India is the second biggest aquaculture and fish producer globally. The Indian fish market is expected to reach a volume of 26.6 Million Metric Tons by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of around 9% during 2021-2026. The changing lifestyle of people and food habits coupled with a rising appetite for healthy food is creating higher demand for processed fish in the urban areas. The country holds a huge potential for seafood with a long coastline spanning about 8,129 km. India’s buoyant seafood industry has emerged as the largest group in agricultural exports in the country. Hence, Timaeus Marketo founded by Tilak Banerjee came up with a vision to organize the unorganized seafood market with their D2C brand named www.pescadoo.com. Pescadoo focuses on three categories of supplies at present. It primarily caters to the bulk retail supplies, Star category restaurants, boutique fast-food chains, gourmet kitchens, and direct consumers.
Its mission is to be the most reliable, efficient, and effortless source of a variety of seafood and meat for different categories of end consumers. It solved many hygiene affairs involved in the seafood and meat market and is also UKAS certified ISO 9001:2015 company. Its motto is to reach and help each and every customer faster and deliver fresh products within 120 Minutes.
It has been functioning in Kolkata for almost a year now and had just begun its operation in Bangalore too and slowly focusing on delivering all over the country in the near future gradually.
