June Business of the Month

Situated in the beautiful Northwest fishing hub of Prince Rupert, Fukasaku is a quaint Ocean Wise sushi restaurant, and marketplace. Since 2013, Fukasaku has offered pristine BC seafood, harvests, and products, preparing and serving them with love, respect, and pride.

Meet Dai Fukasaku

Sustainability and locality are key elements to Dai's business and being. Chef Fukasaku followed the Ocean Wise guideline completely and only uses seafood caught in BC.

“I believe in local consumption. It is eco-friendly in terms of reducing CO2 emissions as it is the least travelled food, it contributes to the local economy as well as fisheries, and the bottom line - it is delicious!

"I’ve chosen Northern Savings because Northern Savings Insurance was the only institution who was willingly to and who was able to help me finding insurance for my restaurant business when I was building it 9 years ago."

Dai Fukasaku, Chef and Owner




Fukasaku is the first sushi restaurant in BC to be 100% certified by Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program.

The Ocean Wise program sets out stringent requirements on how seafood should be harvested in order to maintain a healthy fish population and ocean eco-system.

  • Seaweed from Haida Gwaii
  • Cabbage from Terrace
  • Carrots from Kispiox
  • Wasabi from Vancouver Island
  • Craft beers from the Wheelhouse in Prince Rupert
  • Sake from BC
Dai is committed to the quality of the food that he serves. Everything is fresh and made from scratch.

Presentation is also a very important part of every dish he serves, each plate is a work of art.

Fukasaku’s marketplace offers sustainably caught seafood, local produce, and BC artisan products including:

  • Honey
  • Coffee
  • Salt
  • Birch syrup
