VIU, BC Commercial Fishing Caucus launches seafood business accelerator program


Vancouver Island University’s Centre for Seafood Innovation and the BC Commercial Fishing Caucus have launched a new seafood business accelerator program for self-employed fishers and farmers. The program will offer small-scale fish, shellfish, and seaweed harvesters four months of intensive training, which will help them find a niche for their business so that they can stand apart from global competitors. The program will include workshops and webinars that will provide food industry training, coaching, business advice, and implementation services; as well as an expert-in-residence portion that will see participants creating business plans for presentation to potential buyers or interested parties.
