Small Scale Fisheries

Working with fisheries to encourage the adoption of sustainable practices, learn from their experiences to build resilience while providing greater market access to transform the fishing industry

Small-scale Fisheries, Major Impacts

Small-scale fisheries represent about 50 per cent of the global fish catch. Encouraging these fisheries to adopt sustainable practices and providing them with greater market access is key to transforming the fishing industry

Ocean Wise work over the next decade will

  • Establish a framework for assessing small-scale fisheries in partnership with industry, governments and Indigenous communities.
  • Leverage trusted networks to give Nunavut fishers and other sustainable small-scale fisheries access to the larger Canadian market.
