Treasures of the Sea: Three local chefs pay homage to Lauri & Karen Maki of Hil-Mak Seafood. “The Ashtabula County fish monger and his lady”
We have a very special business at the top of Bridge Street called Hil-Mak Seafood owned and operated by Karen and Lauri Maki. I’ve known these two for over half my life and they’ve been supplying us with fresh fish since 2005. Lauri has been a great mentor to me and when I decided to make a career change, he welcomed me in to his fish market every Tuesday to teach me how to cut fish. In my eyes, Lauri Maki is a legend and a huge asset for supplying us with the freshest fish possible.
