Deep Bay: Students holding sea creatures

Centre for Seafood Innovation

The Centre for Seafood Innovation (CSI) is dedicated to supporting sustainable seafood production and strengthening food security in BC.

CSI builds economic resilience and food security in your local communities by providing:

  • Hands-on education and research for VIU students who learn how to grow, harvest and prepare seafood sustainably.
  • Applied research that directly responds to needs in the seafood sector.
  • Education and support for seafood businesses, particularly small producers and entrepreneurs.
  • Opportunities for VIU students and seafood professionals and businesses, including First Nations communities, to connect and to support one another.

Thank you for your support that benefits VIU students and local communities – and that makes seafood more accessible to consumers in BC.
