Colin Mather , Owner of The Seafood Shop
The Hamptons’ iconic seafood mecca in Wainscott, New York.

Colin Mather is one of America’s most renowned fishmongers. Mr. Mather, a Hampton’s native, attended Sag Harbor’s Pierson High School, and soon became an apprentice fishmonger and protégé for then founder and original Seafood Shop owner, the late John Haessler. On January 1, 2000, Colin Mather purchased The Seafood Shop, becoming only the second owner of the almost half century-year-old year old venerable fish market, kitchen and caterer. Mr. Mather also gives credit to his father, Jack, who helped instill The Seafood Shop’s motto, “The Freshest Fish, The Finest Choice.”

The Seafood Shop, situated midway between the towns of Southampton and East Hampton, on the famous Montauk Highway, attracts countless A-List clientele, from investment bankers to local fishermen, world renowned chefs to mega home builders, along with the regular cadre of celebrities including Jimmy Fallon, Katy Perry, Richard Gere, Jimmy Buffet, Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, Ina Garten, Alec Baldwin and Matt Lauer.

When not overseeing the Hamptons finest fish shop, kitchen and catering company, Mr. Mather spends time with his two young boys.
