UNLOCKING CANADA’S POTENTIAL FOR ABUNDANT OCEANS
Most of Canada’s commercial fish stocks are depleted. Since 1970, an estimated 52 per cent* of their biomass has disappeared; half of this incredible resource that has sustained so many for so long, gone in one lifetime.
The federal government has allocated funding to update the Sustainability Survey for Fisherieseach year. It has also committed new resources to science and fisheries management. As a result, Oceana Canada expects that Canadians will have an increasingly clear picture in the coming years of how Canada is managing our fisheries and how healthy our fish stocks really are.
