Canadian Fishing Company (Canfisco) is a fully-integrated fishery products organization based in Vancouver, British Columbia, with offices and facilities spanning the West Coast of North America. Along with our American affiliates, Alaska General Seafoods (AGS) and Leader Creek Fisheries, we have harvested, processed, and marketed premium, sustainable wild seafood, including salmon, herring, blackcod, hake, and halibut from the Pacific waters of British Columbia and Alaska, supplying high quality products to its customers throughout the world. The largest packer of canned salmon in Canada, We supply Canadian grocery markets with Gold Seal and Oceans, premium national brands for our line of canned salmon. All Canfisco canneries are Kosher certified. Canfisco also markets a range of fresh, frozen and value added salmon products under several private label brands. As a leader in the wild salmon industry, we land, process and sell in excess of 45 million pounds of salmon each year. Canfisco has been harvesting, processing and marketing seafood since 1906. An industry leader since its inception, Canfisco and its associate companies were the first to apply modern "quick freezing" methods and very low storage temperatures to improve the quality of frozen fish. They are working to reduce their emissions through a variety of methods, including lobbying for quota fisheries (instead of open fisheries), reducing the number of boats sent to fish and collect fish, reducing duplication of facilities wherever possible and instituting a number of office based reductions policies. They are also installing “governors” (speed caps) on boats and educating third-party boats about the relationship between speed and fuel use.
