For fish or fish products imported into Canada, the name of the country of origin must be clearly identified on the label. The wording "Product of /Produit de" must be used to clearly identify the name of the country of origin [6(2)(c), FIR].

For imported fish products, the country of origin is the country where the last substantial transformation occurred.

For domestic products, a country of origin declaration is not required but may be provided voluntarily.
