Atlantic Fisheries Fund

The Atlantic Fisheries Fund is a contribution program funded jointly by the federal, provincial and territorial governments. It will invest over $400 million over 7 years to support Canada’s fish and seafood sector.

The fund aims to help Canada’s seafood sector transition to meet growing market demands for products that are:

  • high quality
  • value-added
  • sustainably sourced

The federal government will provide 70% of the funding, and 30% will come from participating provinces and territories.
