“We believe that small boats, responsible fishing practices, and direct relationships between fisher and consumer are the only way to move forward.”

A New Hooked for the Holidays!

The day is finally here! Our new gem of a shop is officially OPEN (Thursday December 12th) and we are so excited to share it with you.

Tucked away on a little street called Ripley Avenue, just off the South Kingsway is where you’ll find our new shop, directly across from the Cheese Boutique. We think the world of the Pristine family who started and still run the Cheese Boutique. Founded by their dad, sons Afrim and Agim are now at the helm of the 49 year old food destination.

In other Hooked holiday news…

For the month of December (or until supplies last), we are offering our Holiday Oyster Deal again this year (WOOHOOOO!)

best to order ahead!

Hooked gift cards make a wonderful and thoughtful gift for the food lover in your life. Available in any denomination, easy to tuck into a card or stocking. They can be picked up in shop.

We are taking orders! Call us to talk holiday food and let us help you plan and execute the perfect meal.

We have been working OVERTIME for the last couple of weeks to get the shops stocked to the gills for the season. Lobsters arriving almost daily, tons of shrimp, king crab and of course beautiful fish. We have loads of delicious Hooked-made product for your holiday table and parties. Dips, patés, smoked and cured fish, preserves, crab cakes… For a rushed weeknight dinner or lunch, stock up on our soups, salmon burgers and fish cakes.

Though it’s a hectic time of the year for us all, it’s also the time to take a second to feel gratitude. We are so lucky to have such wonderful and loyal customers. Thank you for supporting our little business. We truly value your patronage and friendship.

Please come by the new shop and say hi, we are pretty much living there through til New Year’s!

The key to everything we do at Hooked is RESPECT:

Respect for our customers and our team.
Respect for our fishers, fish farmers, and their communities.
Respect for the fish we choose to buy and how we handle that fish.
Most importantly, respect for the preservation, protection and balance of our wild waters.


We are proud to deal personally with our fishers, processors and fish farmers, both locally and nationally.  This enables us to know exactly where our fish was caught, how and when. We handle all of our own freight to ensure that we have control of our fish from the moment the boat arrives at the dock, both on Western and Eastern shores.

“I am a fourth generation fisherman from British Columbia, fishing is a great way to make a living but very marginal a lot of the  time. Hooked pays us fair prices for our catch and in return we can take the time and care to provide superior quality fish. Without this kind of support we would be forced into fishing for large companies, providing a untraceable, less cared for and non sustainable catch.”

–Duncan Cameron

“We are a family fishery with family members on the boat and in the plant We love our product and are very proud of it. Hooked is a perfect extension of Taylor Fish Company … they love our fish as much as we do. They are proud of it, they take care of it and represent it as if they are part of our family.”
