POP Fishing & Marine has served commercial fishing operators throughout the Pacific Basin and Asia for over 25 years. The company specializes in the design, installation and sales of monofilament longline fishing systems, although its broad inventory has evolved to include sport fishing, boating, industrial marine and marine safety. Operating out of a 28,000 square foot warehouse in Honolulu, POP supports a catalog sales business and a South Pacific dealer network.
As Lindgren-Pitman’s largest exclusive distributor in the South Pacific since 1985, Pacific Ocean Producers has designed and installed over 350 longline fishing systems in the Pacific. The majority of these systems are currently operating in Hawaii, with the remainder in Tahiti, Samoa, Fiji, Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Guam, Saipan, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Australia and California. Pacific Ocean Producers has played a major role in developing fisheries in the South Pacific islands.
In 2008, Pacific Ocean Producers changed its name to POP Fishing & Marine to reflect its growth and evolution to a wider market.
