Paturel's strong relationships with the fishermen, close proximity to the resource, and vast holding capabilities enable a year-round supply of quality product.

The waters surrounding Deer Island are fed daily by the powerful Bay of Fundy tides, famous for supporting a rich and diverse ecosystem. The Deer Island facility is located in the heart of one of the world’s best fishing grounds, and receives live and fresh seafood within hours of harvest.
