Photo showing a shellfishThe Canadian Food Inspection Agency monitors the processing of edible shellfish for compliance with federal standards.

Accordingly, the Agency monitors the quality of the shellfish in harvesting areas by conducting scientific assays of the toxins they may contain. Where toxin levels exceed standards, the Agency recommends closing the affected beds.

The Agency also ensures that fish and seafood processing facilities are built and operated according to strict standards and have in place effective quality assurance systems to protect consumers. Additionally, the Agency monitors all fish and seafood imports and exports.
