Nova Scotia Seafood Quality Program

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.
