Closer to the Source Seafood (CTS)
The Albion Farms and Fisheries “Closer to the Source” (CTS) operation creates a direct, fast pipeline between seafood harvesters and seafood customers. Established over five years ago, the CTS division has grown to become a direct source of product from British Columbia and Alaska. With one of the largest Troll and Long line fleets on the B.C. coast, Albion Farms and Fisheries has access to all five species of Wild Pacific Salmon, FAS Albacore Tuna, Hook and Line Rockfish and Ling cod. This access along with the Albion Farms and Fisheries line up of committed shellfish harvesters has allowed the CTS department to develop into a direct source of “good things from the sea” for an international consumer base located throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
In addition to locally caught products, the Albion Farms and Fisheries experienced team has developed a strategic network of global sourcing agents focused on providing original seafood products from all over the world that meet customers’ needs.
Cold Storage System
Albion Farms and Fisheries have on-site cold storage that allows for the storing of over 3,000,000 lbs. of a wide variety of frozen products close at hand for easy distribution to our customers. The system is regularly maintained by an Albion Farms and Fisheries full time, on site refrigeration technician and is maintained at – 27 °C which well exceeds the requirements of the CFIA.
