Glenn Cooke
Chief Executive Officer, Cooke Aquaculture Inc.

Glenn Cooke is CEO of Cooke Aquaculture Inc., a family-owned salmon farming company, that was established in 1985 by Glenn, his brother Michael and their father Gifford. They started small, with a business named Kelly Cove Salmon, running a single marine site containing 5,000 salmon.

Over the years, they pursued aggressive growth, focusing on acquisitions and species diversification. Cooke Aquaculture is now vertically integrated and the largest independent seafood farming corporation with operations in Atlantic Canada, US, Chile, Scotland, Spain, Honduras and Nicaragua.

Glenn is a strategic leader, having developed and grown a successful Atlantic Canadian business with his family, and surrounding himself with hard-working, dedicated employees. The company deeply values community giving and provides ongoing support to a wide array of individuals and organizations including the IWK, shelters, food banks and wild Atlantic salmon conservation partnerships.

Cooke Aquaculture understands that its relationship with the environment is vital to their business.  The company depends on a healthy marine environment for growing and harvesting seafood. In 2008, Cooke became North America’s first salmon farming company to be certified by a third-party eco label. The company has continued to strive to meet various third-party certifications throughout its Nova Scotian and global operations. 
Glenn has negotiated numerous acquisitions and provides oversight to the global group of Chief Executive Officers, General Managers and Management teams within the Cooke family of companies which now employs 9,000 people and includes US and South American wild caught fisheries. 

At $2.4 billion in annual revenues, Cooke earned the #1 spot on the SeafoodSource list of Top 10 North American Seafood Suppliers and their employee loyalty reaffirmed them as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Cooke Aquaculture was recently recognized as the top private growth company in Canada by Grant Thornton and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.  Natural Resources Magazine acknowledged Cooke Aquaculture with two 2019 Industry Excellence Awards as the Exporter of the Year winner and an honourable mention in Environmental Stewardship for their investments in green fish health treatment technologies.

Cooke’s head office is in Blacks Harbour, NB, and ships fresh, sustainable True North Seafood branded products to 67 countries.
