"Canada has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to set things right — to undo the damage done by the previous government while positioning Canada as a world leader in fisheries management by placing science and evidence front and centre.

When the Liberal government was elected in 2015, Prime Minister Trudeau issued a mandate letter to the new Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, which included a directive to base aquatic management decisions on science, facts, and evidence. As fisheries scientists, we applaud this, but promises alone cannot ensure a sustainable future for Canada’s fisheries. To do that, we need to improve the Fisheries Act — the law governing fish and their habitat in this country."
