The Canadian Centre for Fisheries Innovation (CCFI) supports research and development that enhances the sustainability, safety and profitability of Canada’s seafood industry.

Since 1989, CCFI has supported hundreds of industry-related projects that have solved industry challenges by actively promoting research and development in the aquaculture, harvesting sector, and fish processing sectors. These projects often involve collaboration with both the human resources and facilities assets of the Marine Institute (a campus of Memorial University), as well as other academic and research institutions.

CCFI facilitates access to scientific and technological expertise and facilities, resulting in projects that answer and/or address industry questions and work toward the adoption of new scientific data, technologies, and product developments.
