Event description

Description

Be at the forefront of charting a bold course to rebuild Canada’s fisheries.

On October 26, 2016, take part in Oceana Canada’s science symposium, Rebuilding Abundance: Restoring Canada’s Fisheries for Long-Term Prosperity.

Canadian and international experts in science, management, policy, law, social equity, economics and Indigenous knowledge systems will come together to help create a sustainable future for Canada’s fish and fisheries.

Canada is making more money from our seafood industry than ever before, but we are dependent on a small number of stocks. There is growing evidence that with the right policy, management and enforcement measures in place, we can rebuild our fisheries and communities for long-term prosperity.

The symposium program will address these important questions:

  • What are the opportunities for recovery and growth of our fisheries?
  • What policy changes will best support healthy fisheries and oceans?
  • What reforms are needed to increase abundance and ensure the fair and equitable distribution of resources?

Register for free to guarantee your spot.

Organizer of Rebuilding Abundance: Oceana Canada Symposium

We can save the oceans and feed the world.

Oceana Canada was established as an independent charity in 2015 and is part of the largest international advocacy group dedicated solely on ocean conservation. Canada has the longest coastline in the world with an ocean surface area of 7.1 million square kilometres, or 70 per cent of its land mass. Oceana Canada believes that we have an obligation to our country, and the world, to manage our natural resources responsibly and provide a sustainable source of protein for a growing planet.

Oceana Canada works with civil society, academics, fishers and the government to return Canada’s formerly vibrant oceans to health and abundance. By restoring Canada’s oceans, we can strengthen our communities, reap greater economic and nutritional benefits, and protect our future. Join us at oceana.ca.
