DFO's announcement is encouraging and, hopefully, they effectively follow through with this.Great news from Fisheries and Oceans Canada!Under the Fish Stocks provisions, Fisheries and Oceans Canada is required to develop and implement rebuilding plans for the following depleted stocks within the next 24-36 months: Atlantic cod (3 stocks), Atlantic herring, Chinook salmon (2 stocks), Coho salmon, Pacific Herring, American Plaice, Winter flounder, and White hake.Today, the Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, the Honourable Joyce Murray announced the coming into force of additional regulatory changes that aim to rebuild vulnerable fish stocks.The Fish Stocks provisions are now in force under the Fisheries Act. This places binding obligations on Fisheries and Oceans Canada to manage certain fish stocks sustainably, and to put rebuilding plans in place when stocks become depleted; requirements are also now in place to ensure that rebuilding plans are developed in a timely and consistent manner.Read more here: www.newswire.ca/news-releases/government-of-canada-takes-critical-step-to-rebuilding-fish-stocks-...#BIGlittlefish #lettheherringlive #protectpacificherring๐Ÿ“ธ: Luke Barber ...

If you have not already done so, please send a letter to Fisheries Minister Joyce Murray and sign the Change.org petition.The summer SPECIAL USE herring fishery has just been announced to open from 00:01 May 1st until 23:59 hours on November 6, 2022. After a disastrous spring herring ROE fishery in March where the commercial seine and roe fisheries were only able to catch half of their already reduced quota, the news of the Special Use fishery moving forward to extract what little herring may be left is harrowing. We invite you all to join us in calling on Fisheries Minister Joyce Murray to implement Ecosystem-based Fisheries Management (EBFM) as recommended by its own fisheries management policy. The current fishery is a travesty and does not consider the needs of other marine species or social and cultural values.Here are some important points to include in your letter or email: ๐Ÿญ. ๐—ฆ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜๐˜€ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—น๐˜† ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—น๐˜‚๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐˜„๐—ผ ๐˜๐˜†๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐˜€ - ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ (๐—ข๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿต, ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿญ, ๐—จ๐—ป๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜๐˜† ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฉ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฎ ๐—›๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ช๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฝ). ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ป๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜†๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฉ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—œ๐˜€๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ. ๐—œ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐˜…๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ธ ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—น๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฆ๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—š๐—ฒ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ฎ. ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐˜ ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐˜€, ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜€ ๐˜„๐—ต๐˜† ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐˜€ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿด ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜…๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—น๐˜† ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฌ ๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ๐˜€.
