August 2004
The Atlantic fishing industry has changed dramatically since the cod crisis of the early 1990s. The shift from groundfish to shellfish has been accompanied by increased globalization, with larger imports for processing and exports diversifying to non-traditional markets.

This Report Card documents some of the recent growth in the industry and some of the challenges it is facing.
