New Brunswick, Deliciously Canadian

Located on Canada's stunning east coast, New Brunswick is where warm, sandy beaches meet frigid, deep waters. The world's highest tides lay next to seemingly unending stretches of farmland. Sustainably harvesting both land and sea has been a part of this maritime province's story since the beginning and today, thanks to generations of innovation and stewardship of the land and sea, New Brunswickers continue to care for their resources while offering the most delicious seafood, agri-food, and beverages on the planet.

New Brunswick's unique microclimates are ideal for farmers, fishermen, and producers to grow, catch, and raise the foods the world loves. Their seafood, agri-food, and beverages are delicious at every bite.

New Brunswick's Big Five

Lobster Homarus americanus
The World's Largest Lobster Processor

New Brunswick produces more than half the global frozen lobster supply, year-round. Their lobster is prized for its hard shell, succulent meat, and large claws. And it travels exceptionally well. New Brunswick lobster is lobster at its best.

Atlantic Salmon Salmo salar
From Ocean to Plate in 48 Hours

The birthplace of North America’s aquaculture industry, New Brunswick is home to the continent’s largest producer of Atlantic salmon. New Brunswick harvests more than 50 million pounds of melt-in-your-mouth, sashimi-grade salmon annually. So safe you can eat it raw.

Snow Crab Chionoecetes opilio
Shells so Perfect, They’re Blushing

These deep-water treasures are consumed shell-on, so good looks are vital. New Brunswick's sandy ocean bottoms produce pristine, vibrant red shells, while their frigid waters make for exceptionally sweet, succulent meat. Their snow crab tastes as good as it looks.

Oysters Crassostrea virginica
Harvested on the Far Northern Boundary

Oysters from the extreme edge of the Atlantic taste better–and have the longest shelf life. New Brunswick’s nordic bays produce top-quality oysters 12 months of the year. Smaller and safer, their oysters are so clean, that they’re sold unprocessed.

Coldwater Shrimp Pandalus Borealis
Small Size, Epic Flavour

Wild-caught from the icy depths of the North Atlantic, coldwater shrimp from New Brunswick are smaller and sweeter than warm-water species. State-of-the-art freezing and processing preserve the taste, color, texture and nutritional value of these plump, juicy little flavor bombs.
