The Gratitude Seafood Story


This is more than an invitation to enjoy delicious seafood. It’s an invitation to join us on our journey. A journey that began thousands of years ago from a place we’ve long called home — Canada and the Pacific Northwest.

A journey that, despite many challenges, continues uninterrupted to this day. A journey that shines a light on who we are as people, how we thrive, and how we carry ourselves in this world. As we journey forward, we constantly remain true to ourselves, our beliefs, and our traditional way of life.

Since the beginning of time, our elders have taught us that all life is interconnected and sacred. We’ve learned that every living creature has a role and a purpose. To honour this great circle of life, we were taught to treat all living things with care and respect. We were taught to be grateful for what we are given, and to ensure that gifts that we are given be cherished and passed along in good health to our grandchildren’s grandchildren.

We believe in taking care

Taking care is the sum total of the Nuu-cha-nulth principles of interconnectedness and respect. Our core values of sustainability, community, health and gratitude provide the foundation for taking care of ourselves, each other and the environment.
