NO! Segrest and Ekk Will are NOT privately held companies. They are owned by Merriweather Capital. As much as they like to appear down home and "folksy" they're not. Proof is in the pudding

At least with Consolidated you are supporting a local firm. From what I can tell they are privately held. So far. He buys fish from farms throughout Florida and resells them.
