West Coast Wild Scallops is owned and operated by Joel and Melissa Collier out of Courtenay and Campbell River, BC.
"We started fishing swimming scallops in 2017, taking over from Joel's uncle, Ken McGuffie, who was often referred to as the last scallop fisherman. When we began fishing, we were surprised to find that fish buying companies were not interested in purchasing because there was no established market. In order to sell our catch, we created West Coast Wild Scallops. After several years of pounding the pavement, we have managed to connect with local seafood lovers as well as wholesale and retail companies. We are hoping to continue to build our business and this fishery.
Thank you for coming to check our our website and hopefully we can inspire you to try some of our incredible wild swimming scallops"
