The OURFISH campaign is redoubling its efforts to protect Canada’s natural heritage in the face of budget cuts. Together we were successful in getting government to restore funding to the Salmonid Enhancement Program. We built on that success by exposing the decisions of elected officials that have put our natural environment and fish stocks at risk. With this new website, we hope to continue our work to promote evidence-based decision making, to share knowledge, and spread the values of sustainability of our precious natural resources for generations to come.
We are worried that our fish and their habitat in Canada are at greater risk than ever before. In the face of continuing budget cuts to key programs in Environment Canada and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, your participation is needed to raise awareness of the importance of our fish in Canada.
We are glad to see you back at OURFISH. Join us in spreading news and information on an invaluable part of our heritage.
