Welcome to That's Wild!
That's Wild! members support this brand with an annual contribution of $200 each.
The money is spent on promoting the fishing industry by telling our story. It's a big story and a lot of it is yet to be told.
Many consumers are not that well informed about how to tell good quality product from the rest or how to easily find it. There are lots of fishermen working hard to promote themselves and their product and That's WIld! just sort of helps being it all together
Right: At Ashs' with Mark Tunny and Robert Pender. Mark it the one standing on bricks!!
If you would just like to support the project consider purchaseing some of these labels, the more they are seen around the place the more people will think about local wild-caught seafood. Make sense? Or make cents? And they look great!
Pointing people to this website will help people get to know where they can go if they want to find our products and stories
That's Wild! is a celebration of our industry, the people who work in it and love everything about it.
It's about connecting our industry with our other industries, people and institutions. After all, we all need each other.
Keep an eye out for the logo, you will be surprised where it ends up!
That's Wild! is an innititave of The Fishermens Portal Inc.

In 2016 some members of the Portal decided to do more than just let their products sell themselves. They knew that consumers needed to be able to find seafood that was local, wild caught, wholesome and great to eat. Oils ain’t oils and so they designed a logo: the signature for wild caught local seafood.
THAT’S WILD! members pay a couple of hundred dollars each year that goes towards promoting their products through their combined networks. If you see a fisherman displaying the logo you know that these guys have committed to producing healthy sustainable seafood. There is a code of conduct and a few rules, but basically if a fisherman is proud of his product and wants to be considered as a top shelf supplier, they will be displaying the THAT’S WILD! brand.
Seafood outlets get behind THAT’S WILD! as well. If you see the logo displayed in a shop, you know your looking at quality; the real deal and that you are going to take home a decent feed to enjoy.
It’s amazing how many people don’t know how to tell a good fish from a bad one, if you have difficulty your self, just ask for THAT’S WILD!
So, if you have ever been disappointed in your seafood or just couldn't find the real deal, look for this brand, you’ll be glad you did.
