Success Stories

ACME Smoked Fish Corp.

I Made It Here

Find out about how the Caslow family—four generations of pride, success, and ownership of Acme Smoked Fish—grew and made it here in New York City.

“They (NYCIDA) have been part of the engine that has fueled our growth here in New York.”

Business Need

Founded in 1906, Acme Smoked Fish is a New York City institution. As the four generation family owned business grew, the company needed to expand its operations and wanted to remain in Brooklyn.


With the help of NYCIDA, Acme was able to secure funding. They expanded their plant, was able to purchase new equipment, and add to their workforce--all while staying at home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
