Canadian Fishing Company

About Canfisco

The Canadian Fishing Company (Canfisco) has harvested sustainably, wild fish from the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest for over 110 years. The Canfisco Group harvests over 100 million pounds of a diverse range of fish species annually and operates facilities spanning from Western Alaska to Southern British Columbia. Through its fully integrated seafood business, including fishing, processing and sales, Canfisco ensures its seafood products are fully compliant with the highest environmental, quality, and traceability standards. 

Canfisco operates the largest fishing fleet in British Columbia with a focus on harvesting salmon, herring, rockfish, halibut, and hake.  We land our catch in Prince Rupert, Port Hardy and Richmond with processing plants in both Prince Rupert and Greater Vancouver.  

Bristol Bay, Alaska is the largest sockeye salmon fishery in the world and the site of two operations: Alaska General Seafoods and Leader Creek Fisheries.  Alaska General Seafoods also operates in Ketchikan, Alaska.  Our Alaskan operations are major producers in their regions and have a growing share of the wild salmon fillet and canned salmon markets as well as expanding Canfisco’s volume and range of smoked salmon products.

As the global demand for sustainability harvested and nutritious seafood increases, Canfisco is always at the forefront.  It is our commitment to be an environmentally responsible fishing entity in the seafood industry. With this focus, Canfisco has become one of North America’s largest producer of single-frozen Marine Stewardship Council sustainable wild salmon fillets.
