(Gold River, B.C. June 6, 2014)

FROM THE SAME PRISTINE, NATURAL, GLACIER-FED WATER THAT PRODUCES OUR OWN VANCOUVER ISLAND CRAFT RAISED SALMON.

Our Craftsmen Farmers know about good salmon. They know how important it is to have access to the best Pacific Ocean water off the coast of Vancouver Island, water with strong currents, perfect salinity and glacier-fed cold. These waters are where good salmon comes from.

Our Craftsmen Farmers also know how to spot quality, responsible fishing habits and an obsession with delivering good fish. They have found wild fishermen friends who share their passion for good salmon and who want to share in their unique process for delivering pristine, fresh-from-the-ocean fish to our customers.

So now and for the entire wild salmon season we are proud to bring you the best Skuna Bay Wild Vancouver Island Sockeye we could find. Harvested responsibly just like Skuna Bay, Vancouver Island Craft Raised Salmon. For you, our customer, the chef.
