Fishery and Seafood Products
Canada has a vast and diverse natural geography and is surrounded by three oceans – the Atlantic Ocean on the east, the Pacific Ocean on the west and the Arctic Ocean to the north. These oceans have provided Canada with diverse species of aquatic animals and plants e.g. finfish, shellfish, seaweeds etc., they also provide the environment for sustainable marine fish and seafood farming. These oceans have also provided Canada with comparative advantage in the fishery and seafood industries, that have also been a mainstay for Canada’s Indigenous peoples. This advantage along with government and private sector investments has made Canada a strong player in the global fishery and seafood industries.
