About the Calvert

The Calvert will sustainably harvest Ocean Choice’s yellowtail flounder, redfish and other groundfish species for global markets.

Introducing our new state-of-the-art, green-class offshore groundfish vessel the M.V. Calvert. It is Ocean Choice’s largest vessel at 74-metres long and 3800 gross tonnes. The Calvert is a modern vessel designed by Skipsteknisk in Norway and built by Tersan in Turkey. The world-class processing facility was built and installed by local company, C&W Industrial Fabrication.

The vessel gets its name from the small community of Calvert, on Newfoundland’s southern shore, where owners Martin and Blaine Sullivan grew up in a fishing family.

This vessel is a testimony to all the hard work and dedication of Ocean Choice’s 1700 employees and the belief that by working together we can create a strong fishery for the future.
