Canada and International Fisheries
Canada is working with nine other nations towards the development of an international Agreement on the Prevention of Unregulated Fishing in the High Seas of the Central Arctic Ocean.
Fishing is a global industry, and of key importance to Canada. Sadly, overfishing, illegal fishing activities and the destruction of ocean ecosystems are serious global issues that require immediate and continuing attention. Canada is committed to combating these problems.
Canada's expertise in preventing illegal fishing sought as model for developing countries at global enforcement workshop.
