The Canadian Freshwater Fish journey began with the founders, Brent Forsyth and Jordan Shannon, identifying a serious decline in inter-generational fishing in Northern Ontario communities. They spoke to northern community members who recalled better times, when their grandfathers fished commercially, providing for their families and contributing to an overall healthier community life. Brent and Jordan learned that the market for fresh water fish was vibrant, and that in some northern communities there was interest in getting back into commercial fishing. As they explored the local industry, attempting to identify buyers for those returning to the fishing traditions, they found a large gap in the market and decided to do something about it, forming Canadian Freshwater Fish. Working with traditional fishing communities, Canadian Freshwater Fish is able to source high quality fish in a sustainable fashion; ensuring customers have access to only the best wild-caught fresh water fish.
