Fisheries and Oceans Canada - Maritimes Region

Atlantic Fisheries Fund

On March 10th, we announced this $325-million investment in the fish and seafood sector. The program aims to help Atlantic Canada's seafood sector transition to meet growing market demands for high-quality and sustainably-sourced products and we have been working closely with our provincial partners to negotiate the program details. As a result, the Atlantic Fisheries Fund is now open for business with all Atlantic Provinces officially signed on.

Be whale wise!

Help us protect the whales by keeping a safe distance this summer! Whale watching is an exciting boating activity enjoyed by many. With this excitement, comes responsibility - when we get too close, approach too fast, or make too much noise, we can disrupt their activities, cause them unnecessary stress, and put their lives in danger.
