About PrimeFish Canada
The PrimeFish Canada project was a 5-year initiative (April 2015-March 2020) undertaken by Memorial University’s Fisheries and Marine Institute through its Centre for Aquaculture and Seafood Development. PrimeFish Canada was conducted in collaboration with the European Union’s Horizon 2020 PrimeFish project. The combined efforts of PrimeFish (EU) and PrimeFish Canada involved a 16-member consortium of European, Asian and North American partners with the intention of leveraging a deep pool of resources to address challenges related to global seafood markets.
The goal of PrimeFish Canada was to participate in the development of an innovative market oriented prediction toolbox (PrimeDSS) which would enhance the Canadian seafood industry’s understanding of the competiveness of the European seafood market. Throughout the project, five specific European seafood supply chains (cod, herring, trout, seabass, seabream, salmon and pangasius), and four Canadian seafood supply chains (cod, herring, salmon and mussels), were studied and analyzed.
The PrimeDSS software tool was the main deliverable of the project. However, several deliverables and documents were produced during the development of the PrimeDSS. The deliverables and documents that we consider to be of greatest value to the Canadian seafood industry have been compiled into an online resource library for our Canadian participants and stakeholders.
