NFI Statement on the Passing of Don Riffle

McLean, VA— Don Riffle was a well-respected member of the seafood community. From Buhl, Idaho to Salisbury, Maryland with customers in every state in between, he brought 40 years of industry knowledge to the table. Whether he was talking trout or connecting on crab, he was an expert whose kind demeanor and fun personality made him a welcome addition to everything from NFI committee meetings to dinners in Boston.  Don was a family man whose wife Ginny was so much a partner she was a fixture at industry events. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ginny and their entire family.
