Northern Harvest Sea Farms is a family operated business with its origins dating back to 1985 when the Ingalls family began farming Atlantic salmon and trout in the Bay of Fundy.
Focus on detail and quality, and a solid work ethic has allowed the company to become one of Canada’s largest aquaculture companies.
The company today is run by Larry and his brothers David and Neil. Northern Harvest Sea Farms has farming operations in New Brunswick and Newfoundland with over 250 employees. In 2007, the company opened a processing plant in St. George, New Brunswick offering a full range of products including fillets, steaks and portions. In addition to Atlantic salmon, the company processes trout, char and halibut.
As the company has grown it has continued to focus on product quality. Our objective is to remain a recognized industry leader in both farming and processing.
