Albion Farms & Fisheries
Distributor, Processor, Wholesaler

Whether dining at any high profile restaurant in Western Canada, shopping for seafood at supermarkets in B.C. or Alberta, or visiting the bustling fish markets in Vancouver and Victoria, it's likely that Albion products are there. Established in 1963 and celebrating more than 50 years of being in business, Albion is the largest seafood distributor in Western Canada. Albion Farms & Fisheries Ltd. is a GFS Canada Company. Albion employs over 250 people in Richmond, Victoria, Calgary and Haida Gwaii and has a global customer base of over 2,000.

As the founding supplier member of Vancouver Aquarium's Ocean Wise program - and with additional affiliations with numerous NGO rating and certifying bodies - Albion is committed to supplying and sourcing sustainable products for our premium marketplace. Albion Fisheries recognizes their role in helping ensure an eco-friendly, sustainable future. The company is committed to being a proactive leader that is well positioned to supply sustainable seafood products while reducing our overall environmental impact and contribute positively to the social and ethical well being of the communities we live, work and interact in. 

Sustainability and related issues concerning seafood are regarded as a key focus for Albion fisheries now and in the future. To that end, Albion fisheries currently work very closely with the local Ocean Wise program, the nationwide Seachoice organization, and the  Marine Stewardship Council. In sourcing from reputable, traceable fisheries we can tell our customers the exact area and method that all products are harvested under and if there are any concerns with that fishery. Their CTS division imports specific products globally because they adhere to the sustainability principles which are:

  1. Abundant and resilient fish population,
  2. Well-managed fishery,
  3. Fishing methods that minimize by-catch, and have minimal effect on habitat and the ocean floor.
