About North Nova Seafoods

North Nova Seafoods History

A Family Tradition For Over 100 Years

North Nova Seafoods Limited is a fish-processing plant locally owned and operated by Paul Logan. The Logan family have been proudly involved in the fishing and fish processing industry since the 1800s.

By 1903, on the shore where North Nova Seafoods is currently located, Logan & Roberts were operating a factory and buying station. Eventually Russell Logan, Paul’s father, inherited the operation. Russell bought and shipped fish until 1962. 

It was in 1987 that 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 takes pride in its independence; it has its own wharf and buys lobster from its own fleet, as well as from fishermen of other regions. Much of the lobster is processed at North Nova Seafoods, or sold live to companies and processing plants in Nova Scotia, the United States, and Europe. 

Fishermen from wharves at Cape John, Skinner’s Cove, Pictou Island East and West, Sinclair’s Island, Lismore and Cheticamp supply the plant with the bounty of Nova Scotia’s pristine waters.  

Situated in historic Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada, the birthplace of New Scotland, and adjacent to the rich fishing grounds of the Northumberland Strait, North Nova Seafoods employs more than 100 people.
