Customers Rave About
Our Gourmet Tuna and Salmon...
"...just love it."
Thanks for checking in. Yes, we have tried the tuna and just
love it. It's great plain on a salad or in tuna salad. I love
that it's not salty and that the tops have pull tabs. We will
definitely be giving some as gifts and reordering. It's
wonderful. If you would like to use this as a testimonial, that
would be great.

"...both so delicious!"
Hello Diane- The salmon and tuna are both so delicious! We ran
out of the tuna and my 12yr old son had been begging me to order
more. I will order more salmon soon!
Thank you so much!
Melanie from Texas
"Super fast service and delivery."
Just wanted to let you know the tuna and salmon arrived today.
Super fast service and delivery.
Thanks very much.
"...enjoying... for several years"
Hi Bruce, My husband and I have been enjoying your excellent
tuna (frozen and canned) for several years and when we ordered
this time we included a case of Alaska sockeye. We opened a tin
last night and it was delicious. Haven't had salmon this good
that was not home canned. Wonderful!
Hello, got the shipment, thank you, so far I've had the tuna,
and it's wonderful.
"...he rants and raves about it."
Just wanted you to know that your tuna is the BEST.
Tks for such quick service Bruce…..The salmon is a special request
from my father who has nothing but good things to say about the
canned salmon. Hard to get the quality you provide out there. Gave
him a case for Christmas last year and doing the same this year.
Besides what does one buy a fella in his mid 80’s especially when he
rants and raves about it. Tks again..

"Excited to get their order..."
Hi Bruce & Dianne,
Just a quick note to thank you for all the tuna,
salmon & oysters. The last 2 cases have just been picked up, and
everyone was excited to get their order.
Have a lovely Christmas & New Year.
Best wishes from Quesnel,
Hello Bruce & Diane
Thank you for a quality product. Since our 2 cases arrived,
some months ago, we have been sharing the Estevan name with
our friends. They also enjoy the taste and quality of our
tuna. Therein lies the problem. Whenever we have guests and
we mention the great tuna we acquired, we have to supply a
tin when they leave. Our supply is dwindling and and my
question is: do you have a sufficient supply to last the
rest of the Winter, or will we have to wait for the next
tuna fishing season before ordering more???
We really are enjoying the tuna. It is so much better than
the offshore brands we had in the past and, darnit, it is

Thanks SO much Bruce! Your tuna is the BEST and I tell everyone I
know about it! All of our kids are getting a case of it for
Subject: Great Tuna
My husband brought home 12 cans just before Christmas. Of course
I thought, “How good can it be?”
Hate to say it but he was right. We’ll be back for more.
The order page was as easy as can be. Also, thanks for not doing
that annoying thing some order pages do, making you fill out your
address when paypal is going to tell you anyways.
I have bought your tuna before, it s great.
"...will fight til the death for the smoked tuna!"
We are loving the tuna - it is fantastic. My husband will fight til
the death for the smoked tuna! Thanks for asking!

"Not just "nice" but HOLY SMOKES GOOD!"
Just tried your Solid White Smoked Albacore. My wife had bought a
selection of your products at the Farmer's market at the crossroads.
Holy smokes! Is it ever good! Not just "nice" but HOLY SMOKES GOOD!
Thanks for making such a fine product, we'll be buying more shortly.
My wife liked it very much as well.
Thanks! It's so much better than the grocery store tuna that it's worth having it shipped across the Country. :)

"...then I tasted some. Oh my."
Smoked Tuna from Estevan Tuna Co.
The first time I saw Bruce selling his cans of tuna a few years ago,
I couldn’t understand what the fuss was about. “It’s just a can of
tuna,” I thought. “Why are people lining up and buying it by the
And then I tasted some. Oh my.
The smoked albacore tuna is so good I’ve been known to stand in my
kitchen and eat it straight out of the can when no one is looking.
They also sell regular, olive oil, and no salt added varieties, and
you can mix and match to get a case at a discounted price. We buy at
least one case every summer to dole out as treasured gifts to our
foodie family and friends.
Bruce isn’t at the market every week, since he’s often out fishing,
so check the market schedule or follow Bruce on twitter to know when
he’ll be downtown.
Editor’s Note: Smoked albacore tuna is the only kind my daughter
will eat, and I pack it in her school lunch. Spoiled? Maybe – but I
have to agree that it’s pretty tasty. Also, unlike other tuna, BC
albacore tuna is low in mercury, so it’s safe for children, and
pregnant and breastfeeding women.
"You have a great product."
Howdy and good day, I found your website very interesting. I thought
it would be fun to go out fishing on the ocean until I saw the grey
pictures. Sorry but waving wheat fields are the only waves I dare
challenge. Anyway you have a great product. A canned product this
good will be used at Christmas for sure. I have no idea what to do
(cook) with raw chunk tuna however an old "Dogan" like me raised on
prairie fish every friday surely can figure this out. All the very

"Awesome awesome awesome!"
I am writing to ask about the next time you come to the winter
market in East Vancouver? You were there two
weekends ago. I was so impressed by this fish. It was one of the
best meals I can remember last! We ate half of it sashimi style and
the other half ponzo style. Awesome awesome awesome!
We looked on the market schedule and your web site for your next
visit. No mention of next dates. Could you please send a list of
your future visits in the area so I can purchase more of your tuna?
I will be at tomorrows market hoping to find you! Thanks again for
the tasty experience.

"...flavorful and clean to the palate."
I find the tuna so flavorful and clean to the palate. I will be
back for more. Thanks so much, Bruce.
"It is the best I have ever tasted."
I bought a case from you at the Christmas Fair in North Saanich. I
just paid for an order for my parents on-line for a case. It is the
best I have ever tasted. Can you make sure it is sent to them with
the instructions provided to Ontario? Regards D. G.
NOTE: this order was shipped promptly to Ontario, Canada.

Subject: RE: Moss Street Market
(Earlier email:) Hi, I spoke with you at the Touch of Saltspring
show yesterday at Panorama and asked about your smoked tuna which
you’d sold out of. You mentioned that you’d have a rep at the Moss
St. Market in Victoria on the 10th and suggested I check your
website to confirm but I couldn’t find it so I’m writing to confirm
by email. Please advise. Thanx, Fred
(Answer) Yes we have the smoked canned tuna now, will be at Moss
Street (Final) Market on Saturday ,

Thank very much Bruce. I went, I saw, I tuna’d. Merry Christmas,
