Program 2021-22 88th Call for projects


Marine biotechnologies offer different options for valuing marine products and their co-products in a multitude of industrial applications, such as agrobiotechnology, aquaculture, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, animal & human health, biofuels, biomedical, all active industrial sectors in Quebec. The global marine biotechnology market has been estimated to be worth $ 4.8 billion (US) in 2020 and $ 6.4 billion in 2025 respectively. 
Thus, marine biotechnologies constitute a promising avenue for modernizing and ensuring the sustainability of the fishing and aquaculture industry as well as finding alternatives to the burial of marine residues. 
The development of marine biotechnologies in Quebec is one of the measures of the new Avantage Saint-Laurent maritime vision, which aims to offer maritime communities promising and sustainable development possibilities.

It is in this context that CRIBIQ is launching, in collaboration with the direction of the maritime strategy secretariat of the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ), the 2nd phase of BTM PROPULSION's program, in order to continue the business financing initiative, who work in the marine biotechnologies' field in Quebec.
