BC Sea Cucumber (Parastichopus Californicus). The sea cucumber from British Columbia, Canada is a very unique and special species consisting of two parts; a firm outer skin and a thick inner muscle with five tendons often referred to as the sea cucumber meat. They are sometimes called Big or Giant Red Sea Cucumbers and are usually reddish or dark brown in colour. They are found along the entire length of the BC coast and the average commercially harvested length is 30-40 cm. The skin is highly sought after for its health benefits as well as nutritional value. The meat or muscle provides great nutritional values and is used in a variety of very tasty dishes.
Located in Vancouver, Sea World Fisheries Ltd. is a processor and exporter of live, fresh or frozen fish and seafood. Our selection includes oysters, crab meat, prawns, lobsters as well as other marine products. We cater to restaurants and retailers, so please give us a call to place an order.
PFS was established in 1990 in Richmond. When they began, demand for B.C. sea cucumber was low, as the larger muscles made it unappealing to Chinese markets if the traditional way of processing was used. PFS made the product more appealing by separating the meat from the skin and hiring local cooks to design recipes to promote these new products. The company maintains a commitment to sustainability by only harvesting B.C. sea cucumbers within the government-designated quotas that ensure a stable ecosystem. PFS also supports local First Nations communities through donations and by creating employment opportunities.
