Mr. G. Mahdi, the present Managing Director, is assisted by his three son's in this business - the eldest son AIi Asghar Mahdi (a civil engineer graduate), the second son Dr. AIi Mahdi (a medical graduate), and the youngest son Ali Akbar Mahdi (a M.B.A graduate). All the three son's are the active directors and major shareholders in the Company. All it began in the 1980's when Mr. G. Mahdi who had the love for sea & seafoods since his childhood, switched on from his building-contruction business partnership with his father & brother, and incorporated a seafood trading company in Jebel-Ali Free Trade Zone (Dubai - UAE) registered in Isle of Man (UK) under the name of M/s Oceanic Fisheries Ltd. He started since then trading in varieties of seafoods available in the region from Iran/Oman/Yemen..., and exporting to Europe and Far-East. The natural progression was the entry into the overseas markets which was the springboard of the rapid growth of the Group's business in the mid 1980's. It was in the 1990's when the Iranian Government broke the monopoly in the seafood industry by government sector,and invited all private sectors for investment in the seafood industry. It was then Mr. G. Mahdi pioneered the proccesing plan, and a factory was established at Bushehr, South of Iran near the Persian-Gulf coast.
