Government of New Brunswick

The commercial fisheries sector is a vital component of the social and economic fabric of the province, particularly in many rural coastal communities. The sector is backed by a world-class research network and modern processing facilities which make New Brunswick one of the largest exporters of fish and seafood products in the country. The Department’s role is to foster the continued and sustainable growth and innovation of the sector by providing extension services, programs and collaborative initiatives with industry stakeholders and government partners.
