CANADIAN CENTRE FOR FISHERIES INNOVATION (CCFI)
The Canadian Centre for Fisheries Innovation is owned by Memorial University of Newfoundland and funded by the Federal and Provincial Governments. The Centre provides scientific research and technology services to the fishing industry. Working closely with faculty and staff of Memorial University, the Centre provides expert assistance in the areas of aquaculture, harvesting and processing, with the aim of enhancing the industry's productivity and profitability. CCFI's activities also include resource conservation research, equipment development and marine biotechnology. The Centre's services are available to anyone in the fishery who wishes to overcome obstacles or meet opportunities through science and technology.
CCFI is an organization structured to meet the needs of the fishing industry quickly and efficiently. Our Industrial Liaison
Officers collaborate directly with our clients to develop and execute industrially relevant research and development projects.
The organization works with industry to identify needs and then collaborates with the scientific and technological faculty and staff at the Marine Institute and Memorial University of Newfoundland to come up with ways to meet those needs. One hundred MUN scientists, technologists and engineers are available to carry out research in all scientific and engineering fields. CCFI works to ensure that the initiatives are organized, on time, and address the specific needs of the industry clients. The Centre also funds projects, when required.
The Centre's research and development projects cover all areas of importance to the fishery and aquaculture industries:
With strong representation from industry, our Board of Directors oversees the direction and mandate of the Centre to
ensure that our work is always relevant to the needs of the fishery.
