Sport Fishermen


St. Jean’s has been processing sport-caught salmon, ground fish and tuna for lodges, charters, and individual fishermen for over 50 years.

We have learned a thing or two over those years about preparing great fish, and our customers consistently rave about the quality of our products.

Unlike other canned salmon, we don’t add extra oil or water, so you’ll get a can that is packed with meat that tastes great! Finally, we remain dedicated to hand-packing our canned seafood–quality over quantity.

St. Jean’s West Coast Hot Smoked: it is the classic and delectable smoked style (also known as barbeque style) that seafood fans all over the world crave. We cure your fish with our special mix of spices before smoking it at a high temperature. Rich, flavourful fish smoked to perfection!

Your fish is filleted, cut into approximately one-pound pieces, vacuum-packed, and frozen.

Yes! We know that successfully processing sport fish takes more than a great recipe. It also takes a sophisticated tracking system to ensure that the fish you bring in is the fish you get back. Your fish is assigned a unique number when it enters our processing plant, and it stays with the fish through each step of the process. This, combined with detailed documentation at each point in the production process, enables us to guarantee that your fish will be returned to you: “The one that didn’t get away!”

UPDATE on Tuna Processing: We are only accepting tuna frozen in-the-round or head-off/guts-out; we can’t accept loins. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Due to incoming sport fish volumes, all fresh salmon dropped off for sport fish processing must be cleaned (guts out). Whole salmon (cleaned), sides, and fillets are all acceptable for drop off. Thank you for your understanding and support!

St. Jean’s gourmet recipes transform your catch into a truly remarkable taste experience–our smokehouses and cannery are waiting for you, so bring us your fish, and we’ll do the rest!
