Maritimes Region

As one of the largest of the six Fisheries and Oceans Canada regions, the Maritimes Region is a highly diverse area. With more than 8600 km of coastline, its coastal communities, economic orientation, use of natural resources, physical landscape, and cultural ties to the marine environment make our work vital to life in this region.
