LESS THAN ONE-THIRD OF CANADA'S FISHERIES ARE CONSIDERED HEALTHY, ADD YOUR NAME AND TELL THE GOVERNMENT TO FIX THIS CRISIS
For five years Oceana Canada has audited the health of wild fish and how the government manages fisheries. The results, Canada is failing its oceans and coastal communities, but we can change this.
Fewer than a third of Canada’s fisheries are healthy and most of the critically depleted fish populations don’t have a plan in place to see them recover. To make matters worse, the government has failed to improve fisheries management over the past half- decade.
We can’t let another half-decade go by with more overfishing and fisheries mismanagement, not with increasing threats to the ocean like climate change, pollution and habitat destruction.
Action is urgently needed. The Canadian government can fix this but they are unlikely to act without knowing it matters to people like you.
Sign the petition to contact the government and tell them that you demand it do a better job at managing Canada’s fisheries and prioritize bringing back healthy populations of fish.
