Why, yes, Oscar. Fancy you should ask. Behold "tuna scrape", the pink slime of the seafood industry--frequently used in mass-produced spicy tuna rolls. http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2012/04/16/150724125/is-tuna-scrape-the-pink-slime-of-sushi (Pink slime is a byproduct from beef processing that's commonly used in industrially produced burger patties)

The difference between suppliers and distributors is simply a division of labor. Generally, distributors are responsible for getting seafood to retailers. Some buy directly from fishers, some buy from suppliers. These companies can be huge, multinational, mega-corporations. At this level, they need someone else to buy seafood from fishers to streamline their own operations.
