Fogo Island, NFLD
All Fogo Island cod is hand-line, wild-caught so there is no by catch. They are Ocean Wise recommended.
Founded by Fogo Islander Anthony Cobb and his wife, Janice Thomson, and now led by Taylor McMeekin, Fogo Island Fish is a Shorefast social business dedicated to strengthening the cultural heritage, supporting ecological sustainability, and investing in the economic well-being of Fogo Island.
Fogo Island Fish works directly with a small number of local fishers who fish daily using traditional catch methods of one hook, one fish that results in a higher-quality product, with minimal bycatch. Their cod fishers receive higher compensation for their catch, and they work directly with the Fogo Island Co-operative Society Ltd.—a community-owned enterprise located in Fogo, Little Seldom and Joe Batt's Arm—to catch and process a variety of their seafood products.
Currently most domestic seafood is exported. Buying Canadian in Canada lightens the carbon footprint of the fish on your plate. Fogo Island Fish brings the best of their North Atlantic bounty to be enjoyed by restaurant clientele and home cooks across Canada.
