OUR SEAFOOD SOURCES

Haida Wild Seafood

Excluding Aqua Man, the land is home to all humans and the only ecosystem we occupy. But surrounding the grasslands, pastures, mountains, and landscapes is the ocean. A vast body of water covering 70% of the planet, home to an estimated 2.2 million different species that make up close to 25% of the total species found on this planet.

On our planet, more than 3.5 billion people depend on the ocean for food. This is a massive number, and it does not even take in to account the number of animals that also rely on the sea for every meal. Needless to say, it is imperative that we keep this ecosystem healthy and plentiful. The Barons are happy to say that we have found the right partner. One that is doing all the right things to ensure the sustainability of our oceans and ensuring the quality of the product you are eating.

Haida Wild "Yahguudang"

Haida Wild Logo-01Haida Wild Seafoods is a proud first nation owned business. Their goal is to help guide us back to the ways of nature: living more connected lives, eating food that is clean and sustainable, and knowing the origin of one’s food. This is why Haida Wild produces seafood that incorporates “Yahguudang,” the Haida concept of respect for the land, sea, air and all living things.

Haida Wild truly cares about the whole process: the care of catch, where it comes from, the choice of ingredients and the methods that they use. They don’t call it “sustainable” or “green” or “traceable.” They simply do the right thing. They know no other way.

Ocean Wise

Haida Wild is a Vancouver Aquarium "Ocean Wise" certified company. The Ocean Wise symbol next to a seafood item is the Vancouver Aquarium’s assurance of an ocean-friendly seafood choice. Ocean Wise makes it easy for consumers to make sustainable seafood choices that ensure the health of our oceans for generations to come.

Essential Fatty Acids (Omega 3's and 6's)

All of Haida Wild's fish is caught through "hook and line" fishing practices. Hook and line is a commercial fishing technique that replaces Trawling, Seining and Dredging. Basically replacing the use of nets when fishing. Hook and line fishing is more selective than other types of fishing in terms of species and size and provides the highest quality fish. The method can be used on spawning fish as they normally only bite after completion of spawning (This ensures that the fish has reproduced BEFORE they are caught). Lines are set for a relatively short time so that any unwanted species can often be returned live to the sea substantially reducing the amount of bycatch.
