Coastal Resource Coordinators

To better serve the province’s fisheries and aquaculture industries, and to address other fishing concerns, there are eight Coastal Resource Coordinators covering every region of Nova Scotia.

Coordinators help in many ways by keeping on top of issues. From reporting on and sharing commercial Marine Fisheries updates, to assisting with loan applications, to collaborating on innovative technologies, Coordinators are valuable advisors within communities.
