Fresh Seafood from British Columbia’s West Coast Waters
For over 75 years, Lions Gate Fisheries Ltd. has been bringing distributers and food services the highest quality Canadian seafood. From the waters off British Columbia’s west coast to the far eastern seas of the Pacific, we offer our partners a selection of salmon, crab, halibut, groundfish, shrimp, shellfish, sardine, roe and hake.
Much of the fish we sell to wholesalers and retailers, we catch in the wild less than 24 hours before delivery. Your consumers enjoy fresh, healthy and sustainable seafood when you buy wholesale from Lions Gate Fisheries Ltd.
We are also a partner organization of Creative Salmon, a supplier of certified organic, farm-raised salmon in Tofino.
