OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/22/14 -- The Honourable Gail Shea, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, issued the following statement on the pre-publication of the proposed Aquaculture Activities Regulations in the Canada Gazette, Part I:
"As I had announced on June 26, the Government of Canada is taking extra steps to increase sustainable aquaculture production in Canada while protecting the environment by proposing these new Aquaculture Activities Regulations.
Aquaculture activities currently fall under 10 different federal acts. The proposed changes aim at clearly spelling out conditions under all federal acts. Authorized aquaculture operators would therefore be able to operate with additional certainty about compliance with federal pollution prevention provisions. Importantly, the proposed Regulations would also impose greater public reporting on the environmental performance of the sector.
The Aquaculture Activities Regulations were pre-published in the Canada Gazette, Part I today to begin a 60-day public consultation. Canadians can provide comments until October 22, 2014, on the proposed Regulations to clarify conditions for aquaculture-related husbandry activities carried out under the Fisheries Act.
In the coming weeks, my Department's officials will be scheduling technical briefings with stakeholders of the fisheries and aquaculture industry, First Nations and environmental non-governmental organizations to explain how these Regulations will work and what would be required to comply."
