    About:

    Fogo Island Fish is a social enterprise that consists of a husband and wife team; Tony born on Fogo Island, Janice in Ontario. They work with fishers to preserve a centuries old way of life. Paying fishers double the market rates, catching the cod one at a time, by hook and line, bleeding and icing the fish at sea, using day-boats. No by-catch, no disturbance to the ocean ecology. Flash freezing the fish at the peak of freshness the day it’s caught.

    Beautiful, wild Northern Cod (Gadus Morhue) available year-round, world-class quality and guaranteed pricing. Direct to chefs who need top quality artisanal seafood; caught in Canadian waters by Canadians, that sustains local fishing communities with every purchase.
