The Fisheries Council of Canada and our members in the Canadian fish and seafood industry are committed to mitigating the COVID-19 situation by following the advice of international public health organizations and the federal and provincial governments. It is important to note that the coronavirus is not caused by or transmitted through fish or seafood. Live, fresh, frozen, canned and other shelf-stable fish and seafood products remain available to Canadians and are safe, healthy choices. As an industry, we stand with all Canadians and those affected around the world as we join in solidarity to flatten the curve.


Established in 1915, the Fisheries Council of Canada (FCC) is the voice of Canada’s fish and seafood industry, promoting a healthy resource and prosperous industry playing a vital role in the Canadian economy. Our members include small, medium and larger-sized companies along with Indigenous enterprises that harvest and process fish from Canada’s three oceans. FCC members take pride in being key employers in their communities, providing jobs and creating an economic base for other local businesses.


Canadian Seafood

Canada’s unique geography differentiates us from the rest of the world. Canada is the only country that can boast commercial fisheries operations on three oceans complemented by a large inland freshwater fishery – 3 oceans, 2 million lakes, 1 place. That translates to a diverse mix of seafood products that we can offer our customers at home and abroad. Canadian seafood really has something for everyone. See Canadian Seafood for more information and factsheets on our top four export markets.

Future Leaders Canada

The Future Leaders Canada will help develop emerging leaders in the Canadian seafood industry by providing sector specific career development. The industry is diverse in geography, in the type of species it harvests, and in the size of its companies. This program seeks to expose Future Leaders participants to the various aspects of the seafood industry and facilitates opportunities for networking with classmates. For more information see Future Leaders Canada.


FCC members bring sustainably harvested, quality fish and seafood to plates across the globe and in Canada. As food processors, we see to it that our products meet all regulatory requirements to ensure consumers enjoy quality products and benefit from the nutrition they offer.

Our members invest in conserving the resource of our waters for the benefit of future generations.  The FCC advocates for a prosperous fishing industry that contributes to the Canadian economy and supports harvesters, employees and employers across the industry in communities in Canada, both large and small.
