Fish and seafood
Canada’s fish and seafood sector includes more than 160 species produced through wild capture (marine and freshwater) or aquaculture methods (in land or at sea). This includes various types of fish (e.g. cod, haddock, salmon etc.), crustaceans (e.g. crab, crayfish, lobster, shrimp etc.), shellfish (e.g. clams, mussels, oysters, scallops etc.) and other products (e.g. caviar, roe, algae etc.).
Canada also produces a number of processed fish and seafood products in high demand in every corner of the globe, including more than 130 countries each year. With over 7 billion dollars in seafood exports each year, fish and seafood are a significant part of Canada’s culture, economy and way of life.
