AC Covert, a division of Cooke Aquaculture, is stepping up its efforts to deal with the coronavirus health crisis by launching a range of nine themed seafood boxes.

It follows the collapse in foodservice business, with bars, cafes and restaurants shut down to prevent the spread of the virus.

The boxes containing seafood such as Atlantic and sockeye salmon, haddock and oysters can be bought online for home delivery across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
