About Us

At Freshwater Fish, we pride ourselves on providing the world’s best wild-caught freshwater fish products from fish sustainably harvested from the pristine lakes of Canada.

Headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba – the heart of Canada’s inland commercial fishery – we are world-renowned for the high quality and consistent supply of our catch dating back to 1969.

We buy, process and market all freshwater fish caught for commercial sale in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories.

Freshwater Fish is governed by a Board of Directors including the President and Chief Executive Officer.

In-house, we employ in excess of 150 fulltime production staff and add to our workforce during peak periods. Fish are purchased and graded by contracted agents and corporate agencies at more than 50 delivery points throughout the region.

Our fish come from more than 1,700 fishers who harvest from hundreds of lakes within the region – each catch measuring up to our five points of difference: our wide reach, quality, resources, taste and a commitment to diversity set us apart.

Five Points of Difference

Wide Reach

Our reach extends worldwide in both foodservice and retail channels. Freshwater Fish is one of the world’s largest and most consistent suppliers of wild-caught walleye, lake whitefish, mullet and northern pike.

Quality

Our products are consistently top quality and our strict, stringent handling, icing and production standards ensure all products meet with regulatory compliance.

Resources

Our fish – by virtue of our lakes – is an abundant and healthy resource. All species are wild-caught from the clean, pristine lakes of northern and western Canada – waters monitored constantly for pollution and containing sustainable populations.

Taste

Our customers know and love the taste of our fish. Freshwater has been the No. 1 brand of wild-caught freshwater fish for over four decades, thanks to the superior taste and texture of western and northern Canadian fish.

Diversity

Freshwater Fish celebrates diversity among fishers, agents, employees, customers and end-users. Commercial fishing is often one of the primary economic opportunities available to residents in the many remote communities where Freshwater Fish proudly operates.

From lake to plate, we are Freshwater Fish.
