Refusing to go with the Flow
A Family Company
Cooke Aquaculture is the world's largest independent, fully-integrated salmon farming company with operations in every Atlantic Canadian province, the State of Maine, Chile, Spain and Scotland.
But this family-owned company started small, with just three employees
The family quickly learned that long-term success and sustainability would require a solid foundation and a plan that included full vertical integration of all aspects of salmon production.
A key to the company's current business success is its diversity of products and markets and its full integration. Cooke Aquaculture is an "egg to plate" aquaculture business that handles all aspects of production from spawning and rearing at freshwater hatcheries to grow-out at marine sites to processing as well as feed production, trucking and distribution, research and development, veterinary services and more.
This integration model gives Cooke Aquaculture the ability to control costs and, more importantly, to offer exceptional service to customers.
The egg-to-plate operations in North America include:
- 15 freshwater hatcheries including an in-house broodstock program
- More than 100 marine farm sites in New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Maine.
- Whole fish processing in Blacks Harbour, NB
- Value-added processing in St. George, NB and Machiasport, Maine
- Whole fish and value-added processing in Harbour Breton, NL
- Smoked and specialty products processing in Charlottetown, PEI
- Two feed production facilities - in St. George, NB and Truro, NS
- Shoreland Transport - our trucking division
- AC Covert, Halifax, and Ocean to Ocean, Montreal, - our seafood distribution divisions
- True North Salmon - sales, marketing and processing
- GMG Fish Services - equipment manufacture and repair
From three employees in St. George, New Brunswick to more than 2,500 around the world, Cooke Aquaculture has become an industry leader and innovator without losing touch with its small-community roots and family values.
Aquaculture is a home-grown industry that brings prosperity to our region with direct employment and indirect spinoffs. But Cooke Aquaculture does more than help the economy. Cooke Aquaculture is a family company and its owners and employees are valuable contributors to community life..
Many of Cooke Aquaculture's workers have the greatest offices in the world - the waters off the Atlantic coast. And the company's commitment to sound management, environmental responsibility, innovation, research and development and continuous improvement has earned Cooke Aquaculture several prestigious awards, designations and certifications.
The Atlantic salmon is a truly great fish, prized by chefs for its versatility and by consumers for its health benefits. Salmon is one of the best sources of DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. It's also a healthy source of high quality protein, rich in vitamins and minerals
