Coastal Matters: The Failure of International Law to Protect Pacific Coast Salmon: Lessons For Marine Policy on the East Coast
Part of ACAP Humber Arm’s ongoing Coastal Matters Speaker Series
October 20th, 12:30 – 1:20pm
Room 2014, Forest Centre, Grenfell Campus
The Pacific Salmon Treaty between the United States and Canada has failed to adequately manage and conserve Pacific Coast Salmon. A new international agreement that accounts for the uncertainties of climate change and binds stakeholders to implement the precautionary principle and ecosystem based management is needed. ACAP Humber Arm invites you to join our next Coastal Matters presentation where Mason Goulden with the Marine and Environmental Law Institute, Dalhousie University will discuss the potential form of this new agreement and its implications for East Coast fisheries.
As with all Coastal Matters presentations this session is free of charge and open to the public. RSVP’s not required. Tea and coffee will be available; feel free to bring your own bagged lunch.
ACAP Humber Arm wishes to thank Grenfell Campus for ongoing support of the Coastal Matter’s Speakers Series
