Ocean Trout Canada is a steelhead company focused on the production of premium steelhead products for seafood consumers in the North American market place. We are fully integrated from hatchery to farm to processing, allowing us to maintain strict quality controls and traceability standards throughout our value chain.
Ocean Trout Canada maintains two hatchery facilities in Atlantic Canada, one in Brookvale, Prince Edward Island and another in St. Peters, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Both facilities produce juveniles fish for introductions to our farm sites in Newfoundland and in Nova Scotia. Our facilities are fed by natural ground water wells and we source the genetic material from leading industry providers that specialize in broodstock management .
Our farming operations are all located in the pristine cold waters of the Canadian Maritimes, ideally suited to aquaculture activities and the production of the world’s finest steelhead.
In Newfoundland we operate as Nova Fish Farms Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary. Our farms are located in the Bay d’Espoir area of Newfoundland. This area has a unique geography in that approximately 1/3rd of all of the freshwater that lands on Newfoundland works its way to ocean through Bay d’Espoir, a large glacial carved fjord in the Gulf of St. Lawrence on the south coast of Newfoundland . Bay d’Epoir is a brackish water environment.
In Nova Scotia our farms are part of Ocean Trout Farms Inc., a Nova Scotia wholly-owned subsidiary. The farms are located in the Port Mouton, Shelbourne and Pubnico coastal regions of south western Nova Scotia.
The company is currently evaluating potential development opportunities in the province of New Brunswick
Our processing facility is located in Port la Tour Nova Scotia. It is a fully licensed facility with permits to process groundfish and lobster in addition to our core steelhead product. The facility uses the latest in filet processing technology and maintains both CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) and BRC (British Retail Counsel) certifications. Our processing facility is located less than 6 hrs from the U.S. border ensuring the highest degree of freshness and shelf life of any fresh steelhead products available.
