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

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. We often utilize both the human resources and facilities assets of Memorial University and its Fisheries and Marine Institute, as well as other academic and research institutions, gear manufacturers, ocean tech organizations, artificial intelligence firms, and other entities advancing innovations in seafood.

CCFI works directly with industry players to secure funding and facilitate 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 developing knowledge.

In summary, we are a welcoming and accessible facilitator for seafood industry innovation. We work with a wide variety of stakeholders and operations of different sizes and in different areas of harvesting, processing, and aquaculture sectors. We look forward to working with all innovators and problem solvers towards the goal of enhancing Canada’s place as a world leader in the burgeoning Blue Economy.
