Raema Island used to have one of the largest cod fisheries in Newfoundland but after the cod moratorium in 1992 it almost shut down and the town came close to collapsing. But when owner & operator Danny came in and took the plant over, they started focusing on sustainable and unique seafood offerings, which they've been offering for the last 20 years.
Their half-shell scallops are delicious, extremely easy to cook with, are incredibly versatile, and Labrador Gem is the only one producer in Canada selling this SKU!
