Getting Your Fish to St. Jean's

June, 2021: we are accepting sport fish for processing and will continue to do so throughout the summer season. Please visit any of the drop-off locations listed below. Thank you for your support!

Whether you are fishing at a lodge, on your own, or with a guide, getting your fish to St. Jean’s is a straightforward process.

  • Lodges: If you are fishing at a lodge, just ask the staff about sending your catch to St. Jean’s Cannery and they will fill you in on shipping and processing details. We have agreements in place with virtually every lodge on the West Coast, so it doesn’t matter if you are fishing in Haida Gwaii, Rivers Inlet, Port Alberni, or Campbell River–getting your fish to us is easy.
  • Depots: There are many depots on the West Coast where you can drop your fish off for us in addition to our stores in Nanaimo, Delta/Tilbury, Port Alberni, Campbell River, and Richmond (YVR Airport). Simply drop off your fish at the depot and we will arrange transport to our facility. As well, we can ship your finished product back to a number of these depots for your convenient pickup. There is no extra charge for dropping or picking up at a depot on Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland (Greater Vancouver). No other processor can offer you this convenience!

Sport Fishing Order Inquiry

Wondering about your order?

If you have a sport fish order with us, please fill out the contact form below if you have a question. Our sport fish staff will respond promptly via e-mail or phone.

The most common questions we receive are about the shipping of frozen seafood. Once your frozen order is complete, we will contact you to arrange a delivery date and confirm the delivery address. We will never ship any frozen orders without making these arrangements, so you do not need to worry about frozen fish arriving on an unexpected day.

If we cannot reach you for any reason, we will hold your frozen orders in our freezer until contact can be made.

For the form below, please ensure that you include the full name that is written on the processing receipt as well as the Master Number (the red six-digit number in the upper-right corner of your processing receipt). Our staff can find the status of your order and answer questions much more quickly with this information.
