Target species were small pelagic fish like sardines, mackerel, and scads within the Philippine waters. In the mid-70s, Frabelle also started the purse seining of tuna and expanded its fishing operations beyond the Philippines into the waters of the Western and Central Pacific region.

Today, Frabelle supplies fresh, frozen and processed seafood products to the Philippine domestic market and exports the same to Africa, the Middle East, North America, Europe and other parts of Asia. Other business areas that Frabelle has ventured into includes: Marl culture; Aquaculture; Post Harvest Facilities and Services; Engineering services; Ship Repair and Shipbuilding; Real Estate and Food Trading and Processing.

Right away, Frabelle decided to equip 13 of their biggest purse seiners with MaxSea, mostly operating in Papua New Guinea. After Y&L Fishing, RD Fishing, another big actor in the Filipino fishing industry chose MaxSea!
