New website promotes Canadian seafood

Canada is world-renowned for producing some of the most exceptional seafood in the world. The taste and quality of Canadian seafood is unlike anywhere else in the world.

That is why Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, have launched a new website, Seafood from Canada, to promote the region's seafood to international export markets.

Canadian seafood harvesters, farmers, and processors work tirelessly to provide high-quality, sustainable seafood from the cold North Atlantic Ocean. An impressive bounty of products including lobster, snow crab, coldwater shrimp, farmed Atlantic salmon, scallops, halibut, herring, Atlantic cod, blue mussels, oysters, and redfish are enjoyed in more than 130 countries.

The new Seafood from Canada website will help connect Canadian seafood suppliers with buyers in key export markets worldwide. This initiative was made possible with funding from the Government of Canada and the four Atlantic Provinces.

Website features

  • Company directory with more than 300 Canadian seafood exporters, allowing buyers and distributors to connect directly with exporters.
  • Information on key seafood species and product forms available for export, including lobster, snow crab, oysters, blue mussels, coldwater shrimp, tuna, Atlantic cod, redfish, and more.
  • Calendar of events identifying international export activities to connect buyers with Canadian seafood exporters.
  • Recipes, videos, stories, and industry news.
