Let’s talk fish habitat
Reviewing the protection provisions of the Fisheries Act
Canada is reviewing the 2012–2013 changes to the Fisheries Act to ensure our fish and fish habitat protection measures are the right ones.
The projects and activities we undertake near or in water can harm fish and their environment. We want your feedback.
- Do fish and their habitat matter to you or your livelihood?
- Are we doing enough or too little to protect fish and where they live?
- How should we restore lost protections and incorporate modern safeguards through legislative, policy and program changes?
