In one of the more unique testaments to the quality of SeaChange Seafoods products, we are proud to have supplied past Canadian astronauts with our delicious and authentically Canadian smoked salmon products.
In the 1990s, two separate missions to the International Space Station brought gold pouches of SeaChange Smoked Sockeye Salmon into space. In 1996, SeaChange Smoked Sockeye Salmon was requested by Astronaut Robert Thirsk to share with an international team of astronauts aboard the space station on Canada Day. Two years later, SeaChange received a take-out call from NASA. After taking part in the 1996 mission, American Astronaut Susan Helms was outbound to the Space Station again, and experiencing a craving for SeaChange Seafoods salmon.
Far from the end of SeaChange salmon’s presence in space, in 2009 the Canadian company received regular calls from the Canadian Space Agency and NASA. That year’s mission, which included two Canadian Astronauts, Robert Thirsk and Julie Payette, was provisioned with three SeaChange products – SeaChange Smoked Sockeye Salmon, SeaChange Smoked Salmon Pâté, and SeaChange Smoked Salmon Jerky.
Back at SeaChange, the company continued to work hard to get Christmas orders out to customers across Canada. “It sure feels good,” comments SeaChange partner Anne Millerd, “to look up at the stars on a clear night after work, and imagine those astronauts enjoying a treat from SeaChange.”
