To cultivate the ocean with care, nourish the world, provide for our families and build stronger communities.

What started in 1985 as a humble family aquaculture company with a single seawater site in Atlantic Canada has grown into a global seafood leader with fully-integrated facilities, product lines and distribution networks.

Over nearly four decades the company has expanded its facilities, product lines and distribution network to become a fully integrated seafood company with operations around the globe.


Cooke has gone from strength to strength, growing organically as well as through a series of strategic acquisitions in North America, Latin America and Europe.

Cooke Aquaculture Scotland was established in 2014 after Cooke acquired the successful seawater and freshwater assets in Orkney, Shetland and the UK mainland.

A year later Cooke Aquaculture Scotland strengthened its Scottish operations with the acquisition of salmon farming operations in Yell, Shetland.

More recently, Cooke established an in-house feed division – Northeast Nutrition Scotland – in the Scottish highlands, as part of its strategy of vertical integration and quality control at every stage of the salmon farming process.

Today, Cooke produces some of the very best seafood in the world.

We operate in pristine marine environments, rely on science and experts to ensure sustainability, use feed from sustainable resources, and constantly search for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We’re proud of the fact that we don’t take shortcuts.

And we’re confident our customers can taste the difference.
