Canadian fish and seafood highlighted at Seafood Expo North America

Mar 21, 2023

Ottawa, Ontario - Home to the world’s longest coastline and bordering three oceans, Canada produces some of the highest-quality seafood in the world. With rigorous standards for sustainability, conservation and food safety, our premium fish and seafood continues to be prized around the world. In 2022, Canadians worked hard to export over $8 billion worth of fish and seafood to 112 countries.

The Honourable Joyce Murray, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, led Canada’s delegation to this year’s Seafood Expo North America. The Seafood Expo, which ran from March 12 to 14, 2023, in Boston, Massachusetts, is the largest trade exposition of its kind in North America. It provides a global platform to showcase Canada’s high-quality fish and seafood products, and share our best practices when it comes to managing Canadian fisheries and protecting our marine ecosystems to ensure a healthy and sustainable industry.

The Government of Canada supports the long-term sustainability, innovation, and growth of Canada’s fish and seafood sector. Thanks to programs such as the Atlantic Fisheries Fund, the Quebec Fisheries Fund, the British Columbia Salmon Restoration and Innovation Fund, and the Canadian Fish and Seafood Opportunities Fund, we are stimulating innovation and sustainability in our fish and seafood sector to meet growing market demands.

The Seafood Expo is an opportunity for Canada to promote our world-class fisheries management regime and our high-quality, sustainably sourced fish and seafood products. By prioritizing quality and working with global partners on shared interests, Canada continues to be a leader in sustainable fisheries and marine conservation.
