Milligan Fisheries is a third generation, family owned seafood broker dealing in lobster, rock and snow crab, mackerel, herring, tuna, and ground fish. We buy directly from local fishermen and seafood dealers.
The company was started as W. Milligan and sons in 1979 by the late Wyman Milligan and his 3 sons Philip, Darrell, and Dennis who all held fishing licenses at the time. They could see the need to improve services provided on PEI wharves to the local fishermen. In 1983 the company incorporated and Milligan`s Fisheries Ltd was born. Currently Milligan’s Fisheries is run by Philip and his 2 sons Scott and Shawn. Milligan’s Fisheries buys mostly seafood off of Eastern PEI wharves such as North Lake, Naufrage, Morell, Fortune, Souris, Gaspereaux, Wood Islands, Charlottetown, and Beach Point. Our base of operations is Naufrage Harbour and our head office is in St Peters Bay.
In an effort to improve quality standards and further our involvement in the seafood industry, we became an affiliate member of the PEI Seafood Processors Association and gained the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification.
