Economic Contribution

Seafood Processing

...a key economic wealth generator for the province, especially in PEI’s rural communities.

The processing sector is a major economic contributor to rural communities and the PEI economy. Over 2000 employees work hard to produce PEI’s top-quality seafood. The value of PEI seafood exports in 2019 amounted to $280,754,000. The tax revenue from this economic activity helps to support government’s programing in health, education and infrastructure. We are proud of the positive impact we are having in rural communities and the economy of PEI.
