What started as an undying family passion for the sea, passed down from one generation to the next, has been transformed into a global company. Today, Cooke produces some of the very best seafood in the world. The Company’s secret to producing the best farm-raised salmon, wild-caught salmon, scallops, crab, oysters, shrimp, and other value-added products is simple. We work closely with local communities to harvest and raise the very best seafood for our customers.
Cooke operates in pristine marine environments, relies on science and experts to ensure sustainability, uses feed from sustainable resources, and constantly searches for ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We are proud of the fact that we don’t take shortcuts. And we’re confident our customers can taste the difference.
Our mission is to be a global seafood leader driven by an innovative team that delivers superior products, service, and value to our customers in a safe and environmentally sustainable manner.
Recognizing that integration is essential to competing worldwide and controlling their own destiny, the Cooke family embarked on an aggressive plan for growth, with acquisitions and a strategic search for development opportunities that continue to this day. The Company has expanded its facilities, product lines, and distribution networks to become fully integrated within its aquaculture operations. With acquisitions, Cooke has further expanded its seafood assets into the wild fishery. Today, the company is a leader in the global seafood industry with operations in Canada, the United States, Scotland, Spain, Chile, and many other countries.
Cooke is seeking a Vice President of Aquaculture who will oversee up to several hundred people with up to 10 direct reports. This is a key hire for the organization.
