Fish and Seafood – Canadian Industry

The responsibility for the fish and seafood industry is split between Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) which manages the production end of the business (that is, fish - whether wild or farmed - when they are in the water) and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) which provides export market-development support for a wide variety of Canada's food and beverage products, including fish and seafood.
