Canada makes commitments to bolstering blue economy
By Chris Chase
Over the past two weeks, the Canadian government has made multiple funding and administrative commitments to bolstering the country's blue economy – both in terms of growing ocean and inshore fisheries and in boosting salmon survivability.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and 13 other heads of state or government announced the endorsement of the "Transformations for a Sustainable Ocean Economy: a Vision for Protection, Production, and Prosperity." The new document is a product of the High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy, a multi-nation panel committed to sustainably manage all of the ocean under the countries' respective national jurisdictions by 2025.
