Thank goodness the fine folks at globalflyfisher.com posted this funny, dare I say inspiring video to help us all through our “case of the mondays”.

Canada failing our fisheries and marine species!

An expert panel commissioned by the Royal Society of Canada, that has been investigating the state of Canadian marine biodiversity has chastised  the government of failing to protect Canada’s  oceans, leaving marine life threatened and the nation’s ocean species at risk for further exploitation.

Prof. Jeffrey Hutchings said the government had failed to meet national and international commitments to sustain marine biodiversity over many years.

"Twenty years after the collapse of the northern cod fishery, we don’t have a target for a recovery. How is that possibly consistent with responsible management of our oceans?

"It doesn’t stand up nationally, it doesn’t stand up internationally — but that is where we are, 20 years later," he said.

Risk to Chinook salmon

The panel found the foundation of Canada’s ocean legislation, the 1868 Fisheries Act, outdated and discovered the 1996 Oceans Act, designed to help Canada move towards sustainable ocean management, has not been implemented. “It leaves huge discretionary powers to the minister of Fisheries and Oceans, who is given no science-based guidelines, targets or principles, ” the report said.

"The panel found not lack of knowledge or lack of sound policy, but a consistent, disheartening lack of action on well-established knowledge and best-practice and policies, some of which have been around for years."

Among the species the panel lists at risk of extinction is the Chinook salmon, which it claims is threatened by the effect of climate change on mountain streams, no longer a habitable environment for the juvenile fish. The report also highlights the potential of fish farming to accelerate the spread of parasites and diseases and undermine wild species by interbreeding.

20 years later and cod are still in trouble.

"Twenty years after the collapse of the world’s largest cod fishery off Canada’s East Coast, experts say the beleaguered groundfish are still being exploited.

Fishing continues in areas where cod stocks are below “critical limits,” says Jeffrey Hutchings of Dalhousie University and head of a national science panel that called Thurs-day for changes in the management of Canada’s oceans.” Margaret Munro, Post Media News

Obviously this is something that affects all Canadians, our food supply, and local and provincial economies. Something dratic must be done to protect the oceans, and the livelihoods of the people who depend on fishing.

At Peregrine Lodge we have several programs that are designed to protect and encourage the development of healthy fish stocks. See our website for more details.
