The Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has released “What We Heard: Engaging on a strategy to restore and rebuild Atlantic salmon”. This publication is a response to feedback collected while developing the Wild Atlantic Salmon Conservation Strategy, presents findings from the Let’s Talk Atlantic Salmon survey conducted earlier this year.
Also included in the publication is a message from the new Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard - the Honourable Diane LeBouthillier:
“Recognizing the many perspectives on the conservation of Atlantic salmon, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) took time to engage with Canadians and seek their thoughts on how best to achieve our goal of maintaining and restoring healthy populations,” says Minister Lebouthillier. “Almost 500 individuals and groups have contributed to this process, submitting their comments and participating in bilateral and group discussions.”
DFO plans to release the first draft of the Wild Atlantic Salmon Conservation Strategy in the coming months.
