My name is Jon Hunter owner/operator of Queen Charlotte Seafoods Ltd.
I have been selling my seafood in Metro Vancouver since 2004, I’m a long-time partner of the Ocean Wise Program.
I Commercial Troll for salmon around the Haida Gwaii Islands and in 2004 I decided to start marketing my own salmon to restaurants across Canada from Vancouver to Toronto on a weekly basis.
What is happening now restaurants are seeing for the first time what its like to buy premium wild salmon direct from the fisher instead of buying from large wholesalers.
I recently bought a new Commercial Freezer Troller which will allow me to freeze my fish immediately after being caught. This will ensure top quality salmon for our customers. This will also allow me to stay on fishing grounds for longer stretches thus not wasting fuel traveling constantly back and forth to port.
In this coming 2018 salmon season we will continue to supply our customers with wild troll caught salmon and hopefully albacore tuna if I decide to go chase those fast fish.
Next time you buy your Salmon or Seafood ask the seller if he personally caught that Salmon or did they buy it from another fishermen. I can honestly say I caught all my Salmon on my boat check out my Twitter page to follow me and my new boat this season from June – Oct 2018
If interested in placing orders for this coming season contact me asap we are on a quota for Springs so they get bought up fast. Regards, Jon
