WCS Canada


Abstract

We provided recommendations to DFO on their discussion document on Canada's Ocean Noise Strategy. Our specific comments address the unique character of the Arctic marine environment, management responses and further research and monitoring needs.

Key points

DFO is failing to follow the new legal requirement to consider cumulative effects when making policies and regulations, resulting in the ongoing degradation of fish habitat in Canada.
