In 2015, Canada exported $6 billion in fish and seafood. Fishing is important not only economically, but also socially, and environmentally. In order to have seafood now and into the future, sustainable development of the fisheries is important. One way to make sure that fishing is being done in this way, is to recognize and reward harvesters for sustainable fishing practices using recommendation lists, eco-labels, and traceability systems. This research will study local management and governance decisions that led to changes for sustainable development in Newfoundland fisheries. This study will then determine which awareness recommendation list, eco-label or traceability system will recognize and reward fish harvesters the most for their sustainable and other valued fishing practices, such as economic returns to harvesters and communities, increased safety, and best handling practices
