Created by Phi Hoang | https://dribbble.com/shots/14684941-P-J-Seafood-Logo-2-0

Created by carol anne solberger | https://dribbble.com/shots/4902350-Pescatore-Logo
The logo uses a combination style which combines a picture and words in the creation. In the background, there is a big fish in watermark mode, so it is not seen clearly. Moreover, it is covered by the color of the background itself. But you still can see it in a vague. Then on the picture, the brand name is written in interesting font with white color to create a strong contrast so that every element has the same opportunity to show up.
Created by Jay Master | https://dribbble.com/shots/14475183-Thompson-s

Created by Michael Clopatofsky | https://www.behance.net/gallery/81715269/METUSIA-Seafood-Branding
This logo is used for both sides of a business card. The logo uses a Sigma sign as the symbol of the corporation, and the octopus is the representation of the business being run. The sigma itself is actually the letter M, but it is placed in that way so that it looks like a sigma symbol. While writing the letter, I am using Greek characters as well. Well, the word "Metusia" itself is from the Greek language, which means "drunk" in English. And as we all know that most sailors are associated with that kind of behavior. Such deep thought and research for this logo, right?
20. MR. CHOBYS
Created by La Fortuna Estudio | https://www.behance.net/gallery/165462523/MR-CHOBYS-COCINA-DE-MAR

21. OIA Restaurant
Created by Effect Studios | https://www.behance.net/gallery/99359667/Visual-Identity-for-OIA-Restaurant
OIA uses a shrimp as its logo. Looks like a stamp; the shrimp is placed right in the center of the logo, then it is written OIA upon it. As the background, the logo doesn't implement a blank space. Instead, it puts a delicious shrimp dish on a plate. And you can tell how tempting it is!
22. Fiddler on the Wharf
Created by Michael Penda | https://dribbble.com/shots/14983561-Fiddler-on-the-Wharf-pt-2
There are several pictures in the logo, starting from a lighthouse, a house with three different objects on it, and a sailing boat. All of them are pictures of everything you can relate to the sea life. However, there's nothing related to the word "fiddler". Well, you should stare at it a bit longer to be able to find it, perhaps. And that's where the logo has done its job perfectly; to keep you staring at it, finding something important.
Created by Andrés Domínguez | https://www.behance.net/gallery/78141881/Maritimo
Well, the logo is clear. The name of the restaurant is Maritimo, and it serves seafood and drinks for the customers. The interesting part is the symbol which is constructed from the letter M and an anchor. It looks like the anchor is the shadow of the letter.
24. Deep Sea Seafood Restaurant
Created by Kayla Selberg | https://www.behance.net/gallery/76527101/Deep-Sea-Seafood-Restaurant

26. Anchored Life Oyster Farms
Created by Coric Design | https://dribbble.com/shots/18937758-Anchored-Life-Oyster-Farms
The oyster farm has made the twin mermaids the logo of the business. The twins hold an oyster shell, and above the shell, there's a crown. It's like the great life it's represented since the oyster business offers you a great profit.
Created by sylvain drolet | https://www.behance.net/gallery/160591041/Gaspsie-HIGH5
A small fish in red and the brand name in golden presented a great contrast but still in line. This contrast is one of the most interesting parts which attracts people's attention. Its soft background definitely gives the space for the main picture to be shining.
28. Alabama's Oyster
Created by Josh Carnley | https://dribbble.com/shots/12519792-Alabama-s-Oyster
This logo has every detail of the business. It has the name, the symbol, the address, what type of restaurant it is, and even it has the business number that can be called. Complete, and it's all red. What a color!
29. Kohav Marine
Created by Wisecraft | https://dribbble.com/shots/6658689-Kohav-Marine-Logo-Design
From the picture, we can easily tell that the business involves crabs as a commodity. It's not a seafood restaurant. However, it is a seafood trading business. You can see that by looking at the logo at once. The crab represents the commodity being traded, and looking at how great it is, shows that the business only involves the best quality crabs only.
30. The Fulton
Created by Mucca Design | https://www.behance.net/gallery/86602253/The-Fulton
The only part of the logo that you can relate to seafood is the wave under the word "the". While the logo only mentions the name of the business brand, it's quite difficult for people to get an idea of what the business is involved in. However, this type of logo is usually the re-formed one from the previous logo. After the brand has become famous, the business tends to change its logo into something more simple and easily remembered by minimizing the element used.
