Canada – Annual Progress Report Highlight

Excerpt from the Report of the Meeting of the Implementation Plan / Annual Progress Report Review Group for the Review of Annual Progress Reports under the Third Cycle of Reporting (2019 – 2024) (CNL(23)22rev):

“The Review Group welcomed that following a 2022 review, the Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard was mandated to ‘Work in close collaboration with provincial and territorial authorities, Indigenous partners, fishing and stewardship organizations and implicated communities to make new investments and develop a conservation strategy to restore and rebuild wild Atlantic salmon populations and their habitats – consultations with Indigenous peoples and stakeholders in 2022 with a refined conservation strategy to be developed in 2023’ (CNL(04)55 and CNL(10)51). The Review Group noted that the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador updated the Code of Containment for the Culture of Salmonids in Newfoundland and Labrador to delineate the provincial and federal regulator’s role as it pertains to reporting, fish containment and recapture (SLG(09)5).”
