Like most Chinese-run businesses, City Fish is still as low profile as the day it was founded in 1986. City Fish began as a family business and is now considered the biggest supplier of fresh, frozen, live, even breaded and battered fish. City Fish also supplies specialized meat products for some of their clients.
Where did the fish come from?
With Calgary being as landlocked as it is, one begins to wonder where the fish all came from. In most cases, it may have come from City Fish. City Fish is perhaps the biggest wholesaler and distributor of fish in Calgary, catering to many restaurants and markets around the city. From Fresh cod, halibut, Atlantic, spring, Wild Spring Salmon, to Sole, Tuna, to Blue Marlin, Monkfish, Sardine, even Snapper, the lists is just as long as one’s craving for fish. City Fish also supplies frozen fish, from catfish, dace, grouper, trout as well as Tilapia. City Fish also supplies hot and cold smoked eel, herring, and mackerel, among just the many smoked fish that can be ordered.
From all over the world
It’s easy to think that Calgary does not crave fish. City Fish suppliers come from as near as Vancouver, and fish coming from Asia, South America and New Zealand. Delivery is also available to their clients for a minimum purchase of $250.00.
