Acting Fishy: Proposed Amendments to The Fisheries Act

“Fisheries are the gift that can keep giving. If you do them right, you can fish them for generations, and they provide wealth, culture and all the benefits we get from having healthy marine and aquatic ecosystems in perpetuity,” says Brett Favaro, a research scientist at the Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Fisheries and Marine Institute. On Feb. 6, 2018, the Liberal government announced its proposed amendments to the Fisheries Act, previously altered by the Harper government.
