The Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans was formed yesterday. They will have their agenda set by the 10th. If you want them to revisit impact of salmon farming on wild fish in Canada you have two days.
There are several breaking issues that need to be dealt with swiftly such has the developing drug resistance in sea lice on both coasts and the new drugs that are being approved rapidly to try and deal with this. These drugs cannot remain in the pens and enter the ocean.
Every Atlantic salmon facility in British Columbia must be tested for the ISA virus in case it is here to prevent it from spreading to the North Pacific.
There are many issues that affect many people and I just want to let you know this opportunity exists and will close soon. I have heard the Norwegian companies are meeting with MPs to revamp the Fisheries Act to meet their needs.
The clerk is of this committee is Travis Ladoucer
The MPs are:
Rodney Weston – Chair
Raynald Blais, Lawrence MacAuley – Vice Chair
Fin Donnelly Member
