  • Funding cuts to public science and research | Our Fish
    the atmosphere cycling nutrients and providing food to millions of land animals including humans The ecosystem has adapted to function sustainably through complex interactions between species climatic conditions and water chemistry But if limits are exceeded a burden is placed on the system which can disrupt its functioning Historically humans have used the aquatic ecosystems as an endless reserve of food a bottomless vessel for disposal of waste and a constant source of oxygen The overuse of aquatic resources and introduction of pollutants into the ecosystems have resulted in local ecosystem collapse Scientific study of these issues by government has provided us the knowledge to make local improvements At a time when there s a need to protect and understand the current conditions of our ecosystems government is cutting funding to public science The push for economic activity jobs and sustainable industry and communities is increasing but meeting these demands will be impossible if we continue to deplete the environmental capital in the system We must continue to monitor study and understand our natural environment We need to use our knowledge to make the right decisions which are informed by science and not by decisions based on short term economic benefits at the expense of long term ecological health Funding cuts to public science and research Tweet Conservatives planning to gut protection of fish habitat in Fisheries Act December 1 2011 The Conservative government is planning to eliminate habitat protection in the Fisheries Act to pave the way for pipeline building in B C The proposed amendment to Section 35 of the Fisheries Act would remove any reference to fish habitat and replace it with just prohibiting activity that would endanger fish of economic cultural and ecological value Recent Blog Posts Cod fishing shut down in large area of Gulf

  • Invasive Species | Our Fish
    alternations to water characteristics or the pace of ecosystem aging all make impacts locally and add to cumulative effects on the environment generally Some invasive species are well known publicly but many are not and the invaders continue to spread and affect our environment Once established the invaders are very difficult to eradicate While some efforts are underway to study the impacts many species are left to reproduce and damage the environment unchecked In some cases tools available to staff are insufficient to control the invaders More funding for study and better control agents are needed just to keep pace Better efforts of prevention are also needed This government does not see this issue as a priority and our staff continue to lose ground The damage caused by this neglect is not well understood and more effort is needed in this area Vote on what issue you think is most important in Canadian fishery management Invasive Species Tweet Recent Blog Posts Cod fishing shut down in large area of Gulf of Maine November 13 2014 For First Nations salmon is life October 30 2014 BC is Becoming a Poacher s Paradise A former fishery officer warns cuts hinder capacity to
