• Fishing and Aquaculture

Catching the wave of emerging opportunity

Canada is known as one of the best fishing and aquaculture environments in the world. Catches continue to rank among the largest globally, and export demand has spiked. Yet the Canadian oceans hold an even greater promise—emerging opportunity.

To harness this potential, businesses need to tackle a raft of challenges specific to fishing and aquaculture. Invasive species threaten the catch. Licences have dramatically increased in value. Quotas have shrunk. And regulation restricts opportunity if not managed properly. Business strategy never rests for either fishing or aquaculture.

BDO’s Fishing and Aquaculture team brings deep industry experience and knowledge to help our clients make informed decisions. Building on close ties with the industry nationwide, command of Department of Fisheries and Oceans regulations, and mastery of tax law, our professionals help fishing and aquaculture enterprises acquire, finance, and operate their businesses to protect and grow their financial bottom line.

With over 125 offices in Canada, and backed by the resources of a global network spanning more than 150 countries, we address business needs domestically and internationally. Canadian companies depend on our guidance when expanding overseas. International companies look to us as a local partner when setting up operations in Canada. Our comprehensive tax, accounting, and advisory services help businesses address the full spectrum of fisheries and aquaculture needs—from forming tax-effective corporate structures to advising on acquisitions to illuminating international tax matters to securing public and private financing and government funding.
