Canadian Fishing Company (Canfisco) is a fully-integrated fishery products organization based in Vancouver, British Columbia, with offices and facilities spanning the West Coast of North America. Along with their American affiliate, Alaska General Seafoods (AGS), they supply Canadian grocery markets with Gold Seal®, Tea Rose and other private label canned seafood products. The largest packer of canned salmon in Canada, Canfisco also markets a range of fresh, frozen and value added salmon products under several private label brands. As a leader in the wild salmon industry, they land, process and sell in excess of 45 million pounds of salmon each year. They also offer a variety of other fresh and frozen seafood products including wild halibut, black cod, and herring.

All Canfisco canneries are Kosher certified. Canfisco has been harvesting, processing and marketing seafood since 1906. An industry leader since its inception, Canfisco and its associate companies were the first to apply modern "quick freezing" methods and very low storage temperatures to improve the quality of frozen fish. In 1984, Canfisco became part of the Jim Pattison Group, the third largest privately held company in Canada with operations in a wide range of business areas including automotive, food, media, packaging, entertainment, periodical distribution, and export and financial services.

Today, Canfisco products are sold throughout North America, Western Europe, Japan, New Zealand, Australia and many other countries. The tradition of excellence continues as they process our products in state-of-the-art facilities according to strict standards of quality control. With a century of experience, Canfisco has earned a well-deserved reputation as a leading supplier of quality Pacific seafood. They can custom process and/or custom package a variety of products to suit your needs.
