Canadian Fish and Seafood Opportunities Fund

The Canadian Fish and Seafood Opportunities Fund is a national federal, provincial and territorial program involving participating provinces and territories. Project investments focus on the fish and seafood sector, which will advance a national approach to key cross-cutting market access issues and branding opportunities to maximize the value of our fish and seafood sector. This is a cost-shared program, wherein 70% of each project will be federal funding, and 30% will be provincial or territorial funding.
