North Nova Seafoods Limited is a fish-processing plant locally owned and operated by Paul Logan. The Logan family has been involved in fishing and fish processing since the 1800s.
Logan & Roberts were operating a factory and buying station on this same shore by 1903. Russell Logan, Paul’s father, bought and shipped fish until 1962.
In 1987, Paul started North Nova Seafoods which buys and processes seafood including Lobster, Herring, Rock Crab, Mackerel and Snow Crab throughout the year.
North Nova Seafoods has it own wharf and buys Lobster from its own fleet, as well as from fishermen of other regions. This Lobster is either processed at North Nova or sold live to companies and processing plants in Nova Scotia, the United States and Europe.
As well, 125-150 fishermen from wharves at Cape John, Skinner’s Cove, Pictou Island East and West, Sinclair’s Island, Lismore and Cheticamp supply the plant with Herring, Mackerel, Lobster and Rock Crab.
Situated in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada, adjacent to the rich fishing grounds of the Northumberland Strait, North Nova Seafoods employs more than 100 people.
