Celebrating 10 Years of Member Pride

2019 membership membership pride sign up season sustainable seafood

Skipper Otto has been connecting members to their fishermen for over 10 years now, and the amount of support over the years has been phenomenal. In just 10 years, our family has grown from only 40 members to 2827! As our family grows, our connection to our seafood only grows closer. More member support has meant we’ve been able to provide our fishermen with the tools to get out fishing, as well as take on more fishing families to join our growing community!

We love hearing stories about how our members have changed the way they eat seafood since knowing their fishermen. It has been our pleasure to speak to some of our long-term members about what keeps them coming back for their Skipper Otto seafood. Here is what some of them have said about why they are proud Skipper Otto Members:

“I’ve been a member for a long time. It’s the freshest, healthiest, and the fairest system for fishermen. I get so much healthy salmon and other fish through them–I absolutely love it! It’s such a great system to pick up my fish whenever I want it, whenever I need it. It’s almost always nearby, I tell everybody that they should join and get their fish from Skipper Otto!”

–Karla

“Thrilled to be part of Skipper Otto’s! Very convenient to pick up at Choices- the fish is so high quality, so tasty, and I love how buying from the collective is encouraging me to buy local, sustainable, in season. Made a prawn-and-pea risotto with basil and mint last night with my coveted remaining flash frozen spot prawns – yum!”

–Laura

“It feels great supporting the recovery of BC’s local fishing industry while benefiting by receiving the freshest possible fish. We bought their rare smoked tuna (much like smoked salmon) and it was amazing!!! Try serving it with lime-marinated, thinly sliced red onion with capers over rice crackers. Delish!”

–Joanne

“This is my first year with Skipper Otto’s and I am very impressed! Excellent quality product, a great way to get local, fresh fish. The bonus is being able to support small business and independent fishers. Very happy I joined!”

–Jess

“Love the people, love the concept and really love the fish. Long live Skipper Otto!!”

–Jaqueline

Thank you so much to all our proud Skipper Otto members! Because of you, every year we’ve been able to support more Canadian fishing families.
