BC Fisheries Study

The House of Commons Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans has unanimously passed the following motion put forward by Ken Hardie.

That the Committee undertake a study to examine the regulation of the West Coast fisheries, specifically in relation to fishing licences, quotas, and owner operator and fleet separation policies, in order to evaluate the impact of the current regime on fisheries management outcomes, the distribution of economic benefits generated by the industry and the aspirations of fishers and their communities, and to provide the government with options and recommendations to improve those outcomes, and that the Chair shall be empowered to coordinate the necessary witnesses, resources and scheduling to complete this task, starting no later than February 2019.

We are excited to take a close look into this very important issue!
