Bucks Wild Seafood Company
Peter and Lisa Nash grew up in the small community of Musquodoboit Harbour NS as childhood neighbours and high school sweet hearts, and ended up as a salmon fishing couple in Bristol Bay Alaska.
After long lining on the Bering Sea for years, Peter began salmon fishing in 2007. Lisa eventually joined Peter on their boat, the Arctic Knight, and fell instantly in love with Bristol Bay and the salmon fishery; “I spent a week on the boat with these guys, watching and learning the hard work and skill that goes into carefully harvesting each fish, and I can't wait to go back and get my hands dirty!”. They decided it was time to share this with their Nova Scotia community, and that’s when BucksWild Seafoods was born. Someday they plan to have the whole family on board, bringing their two children along each summer for the adventure.
