Fish & Seafood Sustainability

Food safety, traceability and sustainability practices are the cornerstones of our seafood sector and have earned British Columbia an international reputation for safe, reliable and top-quality seafood products.

Marine Stewardship Council Certification

In July of 2008, the provincial government committed to help B.C.’s commercial fisheries obtain certification from the Marine Stewardship Council.

Shellfish Reserves

Recreational Shellfish Reserves are sections of Crown land where the province of British Columbia has either excluded or limited commercial ventures, such as aquaculture, that would impact recreational harvesting opportunities.
