Ottawa, Ontario – The Government of Canada is committed to regenerating Canada’s fish stocks so they can continue to provide Canadians with food, income, and employment opportunities for generations to come. Under Canada’s Fisheries Act, modernized in 2019, the Government of Canada has taken steps to promote healthier marine ecosystems and more sustainable fish stocks across the country.

Today, the Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, the Honourable Joyce Murray announced the coming into force of additional regulatory changes that aim to rebuild vulnerable fish stocks.

The Fish Stocks provisions are now in force under the Fisheries Act. This places binding obligations on Fisheries and Oceans Canada to manage certain fish stocks sustainably, and to put rebuilding plans in place when stocks become depleted; requirements are also now in place to ensure that rebuilding plans are developed in a timely and consistent manner.

The Fish Stocks provisions and corresponding regulatory changes were developed in part with feedback from Indigenous groups, harvesters, non-government environmental organizations, other fisheries stakeholders, and over 400 Canadians.
