Golden Eagle Sablefish represents the aquaculture sector of the Golden Eagle Farm Group. We raise a premium sablefish whose quality and taste is a result of aquaculture done right. We believe in a clean fish and hand-raise our fish from egg to ocean.
Our hatchery is where our sablefish are grown from egg on Salt Spring Island, BC. Our staff are a team of highly trained biologists and technicians who have conducted the necessary research and development to pave the way for sablefish aquaculture. Our juvenile sablefish spend 4 months growing here before continuing their journey in the marine environment.
Our marine farm is where our juvenile sablefish spend 20 months growing in the pristine oceanic waters of Kyuquot Sound, BC. In total, the fish take about 2 years to reach harvest size.
Our local farm works in partnership with the Kyuquot-Checleseht (Ka:’yu:’k’t’h’/Che:k:tles7et’h’) First Nations who help us to raise the fish within their territories.
We respect the ocean and are grateful for our beautiful coastal ecosystem. Our fish have been assessed by third-party sustainable seafood programs from the Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions. We are recommended by the Ocean Wise Seafood Program and are rated Green as a Best Choice by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program. Additionally, our processing plant is BAP-certified.
