Family
Heritage

Over 200 years of tradition

At the heart of Seamax Global is our founder, Mr. Simon Max Astandoust, originally a veterinarian and now a successful seafood entrepreneur. His background in the seafood industry goes back several generations. Born along the shores of the Caspian Sea in the Pahlavi region, he grew up surrounded by nature and seafood in particular. Coming from a family deeply rooted to the sea and fishing, he developed a love for the seafood business which has become his very essence.

It was along the Caspian Sea that Max’s maternal grandfather, Fatalioff Caviarchi, pioneered the modern technology for extracting caviar from sturgeon. He became one of the most renowned fish experts in his time, earning the surname Caviarchi,meaning “caviar nobleman.” Indeed, the name became synonymous with the large-scale transformation of commercial sturgeon roe.

Max’s father, Mr. Amad Astandoust, continued the family’s legacy by cultivating Caspian-whitefish, a member of the sea bass family (locally referred as “Mahi Sefid”). In time, Astandoust became the largest producer of Caspian-whitefish in the region of Bandar-e Anzali and eventually operated 26 fish farms throughout the area. The surname reflects his fame as a fish farmer: ‘Astan’ relates to the Caspian provinces where fish farming is so common and ‘doust’ means a passionate person. Combining these terms, Astandoust, translates to a “passionate fish farmer.”

Max’s other relatives also contributed significantly to the fishing industry. His uncle, Dr. Amin Keyvan, distinguished himself by becoming one of the world’s legendary fish scientists. With the use of a unique breeding technology, he managed to develop an entirely new species of fish, the Cobitis keyvani.

Open-Sea Farming

Organic Fish Farming in Spain:

The unique geographic location of the Bay of Cádiz in Spain plays an integral role in the superior quality of Seamax Organic Sea Bass and Sea Bream. Raised in open sea waters on all-natural feed, these fish are healthier and more delicious than their traditionally farmed counterparts.

Several key factors make Seamax Organic Sea Bass and Sea Bream exceptional:

Natural Habitat: Seamax Organic Sea Bass and Sea Bream are raised in the open seawaters of the Bay of Cádiz, not in fishponds.

Exercise:

By swimming through the currents of the Bay of Cádiz, SeamaxOrganic Sea Bass and Sea Bream burn more fat to develop into naturally leaner fish.
