Welcome to the Canadian Committee for a Sustainable Eel Fishery, Inc.
The Canadian Committee for a Sustainable Eel Fishery, Inc. (CCSEF) is a group comprised of commercial fishing license holders for juvenile American Eels issued by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans of Canada. All eligible license holders have been meeting since 1997 to carry out a shared purpose in supporting a sustainable eel fishery in Canada and in 2012 incorporated. Through education, research and knowledge, CCSEF advocates for the viability and conservation of eel stocks and eel habitat. Our members are active with like organizations including those in the United States and Europe, recognizing a consolidated and balanced approach offers the greatest potential for success within the fishery as a whole.
