Fisheries Act- Restoring Habitat Protection
The Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans has released its report on the Fisheries Act, recommending among other things the restoration of the section that protected all fish habitat. This important provision was stripped from the Act under the Harper government. Living Oceans is pleased to see that the recommendations include changing fisheries management practices to adopt an ecosystem-based management approach. Read the recommendations here.
