My name is Jon Hunter owner and operator of Queen Charlotte Seafoods Ltd.
I have been buying and selling seafood in Metro Vancouver since 2004, I am a long time partner of the Ocean Wise Program and supporter of Seymour Salmonid Society and Slow Food Vancouver.
I Commercial Troll for salmon around the Haida Gwaii Islands and in 2014 I decided to start flying fresh salmon direct my Commercial Troller to restaurants across Canada from Vancouver to Toronto on a weekly bases.
What is happening now restaurants are seeing for the first time what a truly fresh salmon looks like and are loving it. We fish shorter trips and most of our fish now goes to restaurant tables instead of cans or large corporate pockets. We figured more people want fresh seasonal fish and we are trying to fill that market.
