About OCI

Mission Statement

We aspire to be a leader in the fishing industry. We are committed to deliver the highest quality and best value products to our customers; we promise best possible returns to fishers consistent with conservation of the resource and our responsibility to the marine environment. We will be relentless in our pursuit of success.

Proudly Atlantic Canadian.

Ocean Choice International (OCI) is a proud Atlantic Canadian company.  Our management team has decades of experience in the seafood business and has helped grow our company to be one of the leaders in the Canadian fishing industry.  While our roots are in Newfoundland and Labrador we have a strong connection throughout the Atlantic provinces with operations in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia along with strong partnerships in PEI and New Brunswick.

Vertical Integration

A fully vertically integrated company, OCI is one of the largest seafood quota holders in the country and offers the widest variety of species to our customers, including snow crab, lobster, coldwater shrimp, scallops, Atlantic cod, flounder & sole, redfish, Greenland halibut, mackerel and capelin.  We have sales offices in North America, Europe and Asia and each year sell over 100 million pounds of product to over 30 countries

Quality and Sustainability

We are now global leaders in seafood sustainability and quality assurance initiatives and are known as innovators in the business, having been in many cases the first to introduce new ideas and technology to the industry. Our commitment to ocean conservation is of the highest importance to us and we have worked tirelessly with government, research scientists, and other stakeholders to help conserve and grow the seafood resources that sustain us. We are proud that our efforts have led to the rebuilding of some stocks, such as yellowtail flounder, and better management of many others.  It’s that same dedication and attention to detail we bring to our customers, and we welcome feedback and questions regarding any aspect of our business.
