The Canadian Sportfishing Industry Association (CSIA) recently published a document examining the state of conservation in Canada, and how it is being diverted to serve the agendas of U.S. animal rights organizations. The document also examines Marine Protected Areas (i.e. “fishing closures”), their benefits and their current pitfalls, and how anglers can ensure they serve their intended purpose.

All existing DFO / ECCC Marine / Freshwater Protected
Area plans, policies and proposed legislation must
be scrapped while a credible and environmentally
sustainable MADE IN CANADA recreational fishing
policy built on the foundation of the North American
Model of Conservation is independently developed by
stakeholders, without foreign intervention and funding.
