O'Hara Corporation

Founded in 1907 by Frank O’Hara, the O’Hara Corporation established itself in the fishing industry by owning and operating fishing boats and buying and selling fish in the Boston area. Over the course of the early to mid 1900s, O’Hara Corp. spread from Boston into the Maine towns of Portland, Eastport, and Rockland, eventually establishing its headquarters in Rockland.

Adjusting to the ever-changing fish business, the company currently operates a fishing fleet on the West Coast, where its catcher-processors participate in the Alaska groundfish fishery. On the East Coast, the company operates scallop and herring vessels.
