Throughout the pandemic, Freshwater Fish has worked purposefully to provide its products and services to our stakeholders, while taking necessary steps to ensure the safety of fishers and employees. Freshwater Fish recommends mask use throughout our facilities; however, the use of face masks is no longer mandatory. Freshwater will provide medical grade masks to those employees and visitors who choose to wear them in our facilities.

Please remember the best way to protect yourself and others is to:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Wash hands frequently. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When hand washing is not practical, use an alcohol-based rub/sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your face (specifically your eyes, nose, and mouth) as much as possible.
  • Cover your mouth when coughing, sneezing, or yawning by doing so into the bend of your arm, not your hand.
  • Practice physical distancing



Freshwater’s brand represents a global benchmark for top quality wild-caught Canadian freshwater fish. In the Midwest United States, walleye marketed by Freshwater is a premier choice for chefs when placing walleye on their menus. Freshwater is a large and trusted supplier of lake whitefish and lake whitefish caviar to Finland and a key supplier of tullibee roe in Scandinavia. We continue to be the dominant supplier to the northern pike market in France, both with minced and new product innovations. We are the largest individual supplier of freshwater fish products to the American gefilte fish market and maintain a kosher-certified processing facility.

Freshwater has earned a solid reputation based on product reliability, quality and safety. We are a recognized industry leader with an internationally established and highly endorsed brand of excellence.


Freshwater Fish has played a pivotal role in meeting the unique needs of Canada’s commercial inland fishery for over 50 years. The Corporation’s purpose remains true to its 1969 legislated mandate in its current mission statement: To maximize long term returns to commercial fishers through securing supply, creating an orderly market, promoting international markets and increasing trade in freshwater fish. Canada’s commercial inland fishery and Freshwater Fish have contributed to the economic prosperity of many fishing communities in western and northern Canada for over half a century.
