IMPORTANT NEWS from the CEO (October 1st, 2020)

As of October 1st and throughout the winter, Coastal Shellfish will be directing all our resources towards maintaining our farming and hatchery operations, and therefore not harvesting Great Bear Scallops for wide distribution.

This is an important time for us to direct all resources towards our scallop stocks to ensure a sustainable resource and business moving forward.

We expect to resume harvesting in spring 2021 and again provide the market with a consistent supply of highly sustainable and top-quality Great Bear Scallops at that time.

We look forward to sharing our stories from Prince Rupert on Instagram and Twitter as work on the farm and in the hatchery continues. We welcome you to follow along and we’d love to hear from you.

Thank you for all your interest and support for Great Bear Scallops!

A very limited amount of shucked Great Bear Scallops may be available weekly for our immediate Prince Rupert community during this period as one of our farm sites undergoes maintenance.

In the heart of the pristine Great Bear Rainforest on Canada’s rugged West Coast, Coastal Shellfish is growing and producing high quality, high demand shellfish in a sustainable and environmentally respectful way.

As a First Nations owned company, Coastal Shellfish combines modern technology and aquaculture best practices with the traditional knowledge of the Coast Tsimshian people who have lived and harvested in this area for millennia. Coastal Shellfish not only seeds, grows and harvests all of the shellfish in the waters around Prince Rupert, but processes everything locally as well to ensure only the best product leaves our facilities. Great Bear Scallops’ Oceanwise sustainability certification is a reflection of our commitment to protecting the environment we operate in while bringing fresh, safe seafood to customers around the world.

At Coastal Shellfish, we are building to the future by looking to the past. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site and we look forward to sharing our Great Bear Scallops with you in the future.
