Responsible fisheries training in Canada
The concept of responsible fisheries matters all parties involved in fishing and other related activities that utilize or deal with marine and freshwater resources. The Code of Responsible Fisheries as developed by FAO makes all involved in fisheries aware of what they do, how they do it and consequences of their activities. One of the most important aspects of responsible fisheries initiatives of any countries or regions is responsible fisheries training so that stakeholders are well aware of their activities and possible consequences. Canada is one of the countries making significant progresses in training as well in research and development as related to responsible fisheries. The effort of Canada are broadly based covering the Atlantic and Pacific coasts as well as inland waters. This presentation overviews harvesting-related responsible fisheries guidelines and training initiatives in Canada with emphasis on a new responsible fisheries training program being developed by the Fisheries and Marine Ins.
