Mayport seafood vendor Roland Seafood plans to close


A large “For Lease” sign has gone up in front of Mayport’s Roland Seafood Co. as its owners start planning for their retirement.

“It’s time to retire,” reads a Friday post on the seafood company’s Facebook page. “We will stay open until we can lease out our property. We have enjoyed serving all our customers for 14yrs and will really miss seeing y’all everyday. But working every Saturday has finally taken its toll.”

Things were jumping on Friday, though — the owners were too busy dealing with customers to talk about their plans.

Roland Seafood Co. traces its roots to 1932 and operated a fleet of shrimping boats in the area for decades. The old Mat Roland Seafood Co. building was razed in 2008 to make way for a proposed cruise ship terminal that was never built. The current location, which sells Mayport shrimp, oysters by the bushel and fresh seasonal seafood, is at 1790 Mayport Road.
