In partnership with Perennia and Université Sainte-Anne, Nova Scotia Seafood is thrilled to launch the Nova Scotia Seafood Quality Program (NSSQP) for Nova Scotia's top exported seafood products. These certifications were developed to promote high quality standards within the Nova Scotia seafood supply chain and to enhance our international reputation for premium quality seafood.
Managed by Université Sainte-Anne, lobster suppliers, exporters, and harvesters must comply with handling and holding best practices, lobster quality, water monitoring and traceability. A manual and guidelines are available for companies interested in learning more about the program and its criteria. For more information on this certification, click here or contact us.
