Welcome to Pentlatch Seafoods!
Our company grows premium quality oysters and clams in the heart of Canada’s Shellfish Capital – the Comox Valley within the traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation.
Reflecting back upon the natural resource
abundance of our territory, the name K’ómoks literally means the “Land of Plenty”. The K’ómoks First Nation, through our oral history, trace our habitation within our traditional territories back to the creation. Anthropological data shows the inhabitation of coastal people (Coast Salish) goes back at least 8,000 years, approximately to the time of the retreat from the last ice age. The K’ómoks First Nation today represents a historical blending of the descendants of the IslandK’ómoks and Puntledge (Pentlatch) tribes.
Proud to be recognized by the
Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise Program
