About Us

Since 1936, we understand what it takes to support fish harvesters in Nova Scotia. You know harvesting in waters off Nova Scotia. You know what it takes to run a profitable business - to balance resources for today and the future. You see opportunity - and so do we. That's why for 80 years we’ve enjoyed supporting fishers. Our clients aren't numbers or accounts – they're our friends, our neighbours and the heart of our coastal communities.

The Board has worked with fishers and boat builders for more than 8 decades. An eligible boat builder list continues to be used by fishers. Our Vessel Inspector will view the progress on your vessel at important times during the build. We are proud to be part of your team.

We know Aquaculture is a fit for Nova Scotia. We have a physical geography that provides huge opportunities. We produce high quality products from many different fish species that are sold worldwide. We understand our sea farmers grow 1st class products.
