Marine Issues

Our Vision

Canada’s oceans are healthy and our coastal communities thrive. This is achieved through sound conservation-based management, equitable policy and resilient markets that incentivize sustainable fishing practices, while ensuring that Canadians have access to fresh, fair fish.

How We Work

We work locally, nationally and internationally towards protecting the marine ecosystem and maintaining sustainable fisheries, which support vibrant coastal communities.

We pride ourselves in being able to use a variety of tools to achieve our marine conservation goals and objectives, which have and will continue to result in positive changes on the water. We advocate, conduct research, engage in public education, as well market based approaches and legal tools to achieve our campaign goals. Collaborative efforts with Canadians and international NGOS, scientists, fishing organizations and government agencies are integral to our approach.

We work in five main program areas, through specific projects and ongoing core program activities.
