About Us

We are the Nova Scotia Seafood Alliance.

A new name. A ‘ fresh ’ approach.

Built upon a very solid foundation.

Since 1975, we have transitioned from the original Nova Scotia Salt Fish Packers Association to the Nova Scotia Fish Packers Association in a seamless fashion to better reflect the activities of our membership. We have represented small and medium sized land based seafood companies primarily in South West Nova Scotia. In recent years, we have expanded our membership base to include all of Nova Scotia. The original focus on salt fish now includes virtually every fish in the ocean...

So it just seems timely, and appropriate, to re-name and re-brand our Association for the next 50 years. The Nova Scotia Seafood Alliance is an association whose time has arrived and our transition from "Fish Packers" has now been formally completed.

We have 120+ Member Companies all of whom have fascinating individual stories and products. But we are one Nova Scotia Seafood Alliance anxious to increase our membership, broaden our voice and our benefits and maintain the same good policy work for which our original association has been highly complimented.

Welcome to our fresh beginning ….

We are the Nova Scotia Seafood Alliance.
