New jobs, processing capacity in Nova Scotia & Newfoundland.

Clearwater Increases Investment in Market Leading Arctic Surf Clam Fishery

  (CANADA, 2/8/2017)

Ian Smith, CEO of Clearwater Seafoods Inc. has announced today more than $5 million in new investments in Clearwater's market-leading Arctic surf clam fishery. The investments in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia and Grand Bank, Newfoundland will add new jobs, processing capacity and spur continued sustainable growth of the fishery.

"Today's investment is good news for local jobs, domestic seafood processing capacity and those looking for the very finest wild-caught surf clams from Atlantic Canada," says Mr. Smith. "With this investment, Clearwater will continue to expand the export market for wild-caught Canadian seafood and build on its global leadership in sustainable seafood excellence." 

Sustainably harvested from the deep, nutrient-rich waters of the North Atlantic Clearwater's Arctic Surf Clams (Hokkigai) are exceptionally suited for sushi-style dishes and Asian cuisine.

Arctic surf clams are very popular in sushi in JapanChina and South Korea, where they are known as hokkigai or bei gei bei. These new investments will enable Clearwater to better serve its traditional customer base while expanding distribution to new markets especially in Europe where sushi consumption is growing rapidly.

Today's announcement includes a $2 million investment to establish clam processing capacity at Clearwater's Highland Fisheries facility in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia.

This investment will turn a seasonal crab plant in CapeBreton into a year-round seafood processing operation providing full time, year-round jobs for 36 people. There will also be opportunities for additional seasonal employment during the peak crab production season.

An additional investment of $3.6 million will be made in Clearwater's existing Grand Bank, Newfoundland facility to increase grading and processing, improve infrastructure and expand production of additional value-added product formats. This facility will continue to be Clearwater's primary clam processing operation, with the Highland facility supporting the requirement for additional grading and packaging capacity. 

 

Frozen-at-sea within an hour of catch to lock in unbeatable freshness, flavor and texture. 

The Arctic surf clam fishery is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified. Clearwater invested millions to fund clam science in collaboration with the DFO through joint project and collaborative agreements and academic institutions.

Only the finest sushi-grade clams make it through Clearwater's demanding quality control process and are shipped to satisfied customers around the world.
