Just wondering where your salmon and other seafood comes from. Thank you
Love the new store. I was happy to see a person from the previous store and talk to him yesterday. Great new look with lots of friendly helpful staff.

Hi Marlene,
Our seafood comes from different places depending on availability. Right now, our salmon is fresh, BC wild salmon that is Ocean Wise approved. Right now it is previously frozen as the salmon run has not started yet. When the salmon run starts in BC we will have fresh, local salmon available. As for our other seafood items, we try to source locally as often as possible. When it comes to our local seafood, the place of origin will always be listed on the sign, example “Harvested on Vancouver Island”.

We are also a Ocean Wise partner. Ocean Wise is an organized program initiative lead by the Vancouver Aquarium created to identify ocean-friendly seafood choices and make strides to ensure the health of our oceans. At Meridian, we are striving to provide you with seafood options that are sustainable and harvested using fishing practices that reduce by-catch and avoid any harm to sea life habitat.
The Ocean Wise symbol is marked on the signage for all of the seafood items we have on display in our showcases that are currently listed as Ocean Wise approved.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to email us at customercare@meridianmeats.ca or call us at (604) 466-0508.
