Yarmouth to Host Major Commercial Fishing Expo in January

One of Canada’s longest-running, most successful commercial fishing shows returns to the Yarmouth Mariners Centre in two short months. The Eastern Canadian Fisheries Exposition, held every two years in southwestern Nova Scotia, offers a comprehensive showcase of commercial marine products and services. The show is presented in partnership with the Navigator Magazine, the Voice of Atlantic Canada’s Fishing Industry.

“2018 has been an exceptionally successful year across our portfolio of commercial marine shows, and we’re looking forward for this trend to continue in Yarmouth,” said Show Manager, Shawn Murphy. “For the first time in nearly a decade, every square inch of the Mariners Centre is completely  sold out. With ramped-up exhibit sales along with strong visitor pre-registration, we’re prepared for a record-setting event.”

This edition of the show will offer visitors a chance to see even more innovative products for the fisheries and marine industry and chat with companies from across the Maritimes, Canada, and abroad. At its last edition in 2017, attendance numbers soared to 4,726 – the highest in more than a decade. Attendees include fish harvesters, fish processors, those involved in the workboat industry, search & rescue organizations, and other professions in, on, or around the water.

Visitors are encouraged to pre-register to receive a show badge in advance, skip lines, and save 50% on admission. Visitor registration can be found here.

The Eastern Canadian Fisheries Exposition is part of an array of marine trade events in Atlantic Canada produced by Master Promotions Ltd. in partnership with The Navigator. Other related events include the North Atlantic Fish & Workboat Show and Fish Canada Workboat Canada, held in Saint John’s, NL and Moncton, NB respectively.

Again in 2019, deserving individuals who have made valuable contributions to the marine industry will be inducted into the Atlantic Canada Marine Industries Hall of Fame. Additionally, a networking reception will take place in conjunction with the show.
