Our business was builtfrom the ocean floor up.
  • header image

We started with pure, fresh fish. But we didn’t stop there.

Cooke Aquaculture Inc. is a vertically-integrated aquaculture corporation based in Blacks Harbour, New Brunswick, Canada with salmon farming operations in Atlantic Canada, the United States (Maine and Washington), Chile and Scotland, as well as seabass and seabream farming operations in Spain.

The quality of our seafood products depends on the care we take – from the egg to the plate.

Part of our global success comes from our ability to control our supply chain, creating consistency of quality standards and fast, fresh delivery for our clients around the world.

True North Seafood

Freshness and Variety.

Our obsession with delicious, fresh seafood has been in our DNA ever since the day our ancestors began fishing the waters of the Bay of Fundy six generations ago. Like our grandparents, we’re proud
to spend our days living and working alongside our neighbors and friends in coastal communities. Fishing is in our blood. It drives us to innovate – to stay true to you, the environment and true to ourselves. It’s our guiding principle. It’s our “True North”.

To us, the ocean is a provider. It gives us so much. It provides us with food and allows those who live and work near the water to enjoy a unique livelihood and lifestyle. The ocean is a source of pride. For generations, it has shaped our families and communities and given us a sense of identity and purpose. And we’re determined to make sure it stays that way for generations to come. We believe the health of our communities depends on the health of the ocean. For us, staying true to the ocean is how we stay true to ourselves, our community, and our future. And that’s why we fish and farm with care – to ensure long- term social, economic, and environmental sustainability.

Cooke Aquaculture USA

Building Up In Downeast Maine.

Cooke Aquaculture has been a part of the Downeast Maine community for more than a decade, since purchasing the East Coast operations of some of our biggest competitors who had decided to leave the area. These operations included Atlantic Salmon of Maine, Heritage Salmon and Stolt Sea Farm (which later became Marine Harvest).

Because these companies were in financial difficulty, the acquisitions became turnaround operations. Changes were implemented quickly in order to save hundreds of jobs. Cooke took a collaborative approach with both government regulators and non-governmental organizations to rebuild a sustainable salmon farming sector in Maine.

Today, Cooke has marine farms in three distinct areas of Maine: Eastport, Machiasport and Points South, including Black Island South, near Bar Harbor. Cooke also operates three freshwater hatcheries at Gardner Lake, Bingham and Oquossoc. Value-added processing takes place at the Machiasport facility, giving Cooke a fully-integrated operation within the State of Maine.

Cooke will continue to build the state’s salmon farming sector to meet a growing demand for fresh, Maine ocean raised Atlantic salmon. That includes continuing to embrace the bay management area structure by stocking three distinct geographical areas. This ‘all-in, all-out’ management style has proven to be beneficial for fish health, and the health of our shared marine environment.
