Gidney Fisheries Limited
Exporter, Processor, Wholesaler
The Gidneys settled on Digby Neck in 1789. In 1892 Samuel Gidney began buying lobsters in Mink Cove, Digby County, Nova Scotia. He purchased lobsters from local fisherman and exported them weekly via steamship to Boston Massachusetts. These live-lobster transactions gave birth to a tradition that has been passed on through four generations of Gidneys. They developed a reputation renowned throughout the world.
Gidney Fisheries Limited continues this tradition of procuring, selecting, processing and delivering the finest quality lobsters harvested from the rich fishing grounds of Bay of Fundy, Saint Mary's Bay and Southwestern Nova Scotia. Although lobsters are their core product offering they have a strong history of processing other seafood such as: fresh, frozen and salted ground fish, scallops, crabs and dog fish.
The company is proud of having cultivated long-standing and trusted relationships with generations of lobster fishermen from the ports of Digby Neck. These relationships have empowered Gidney fisheries to source out a reliable supply of lobster from passionate fishermen who care about the quality of their catches and take pride in their occupation. Like their family many of these people are fourth generation fisherman.
They are committed to their communities and the sustainability of the fishery on which they have relied on for over 100 years. The company's long-term success has been a result of a tradition of hard work, integrity, trust and a dedication to quality seafood.
