Affiliated Applied Research and Development Centres


The Canadian Centre for Fisheries Innovation is owned by Memorial University of Newfoundland and funded by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. A research and development organization, the Centre provides scientific research and technology services to the fishing industry. Working closely with Memorial University, the Centre provides expert assistance in the areas of aquaculture, harvesting and processing, with the aim of enhancing industry 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.


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.
