Founded by Fogo Islander Anthony Cobb and his wife, Janice Thomson, and now led by Taylor McMeekin, Fogo Island Fish is a Shorefast social business. Our cod fishers receive higher compensation for their catch, and we work directly with the Fogo Island Co-operative Society Ltd.—a community-owned enterprise located in Fogo, Little Seldom and Joe Batt's Arm—to catch and process a variety of seafood products.
Currently most domestic seafood is exported. Buying Canadian in Canada lightens the carbon footprint of the fish on your plate. We want to ensure the best of our North Atlantic bounty can be enjoyed by restaurant clientele and home cooks in Canada too.
