Canada’s #1 Seafood Exporter

Nova Scotia fish harvesters and processors offer the highest quality fish and shellfish, pulled responsibly and sustainably from the icy waters of the North Atlantic.

In 2015, Nova Scotia exported $1.68 billion in seafood to more than 75 countries. It's easy to export large quantities of fresh products with ports that are ice-free year round, and convenient road, rail, and air connections. Daily air service operates to Asia, Europe, and North America.

The province's seafood industry also benefits from reliable, efficient supply chains that support everything from harvest to processing to distribution. 

Home to a wide range of species

Nova Scotia's seafood industry includes 178 processing companies that provide year-round access to more than 50 species of premium quality fish and seafood, including: 

  • Canadian Lobster
  • Snow Crab
  • Sea Scallop
  • Oysters
  • Coldwater Shrimp
  • Tuna
  • Swordfish
  • Haddock
  • Atlantic Halibut
  • Herring

Nova Scotia's sustainable fishing industry is driven by a commitment to quality at every step along the value chain. Our partners include governments, industry associations, harvesters, processors, and supply chain service providers. Together, we work hard to deliver the highest quality fish and shellfish. 

With sustainably-managed fisheries that provide an abundance of fish stocks from the North Atlantic on a daily basis, Nova Scotia is Canada’s leading fish and seafood exporter.

With companies like these, Nova Scotia fish products - and our premium hard-shell lobster - can be found in over 75 different countries, thanks to timely and consistent cold chain logistics with capacity to deliver fresh seafood to North American, European, and Asian markets.
