Science advice on the determination of offset requirements for the Fisheries Protection Program: Fs70-6/2017-009E-PDF

“Amendments to the Fisheries Act (2012) came into force in 2013. These amendments change the way that Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) assesses and manages impacts on aquatic ecosystems. The amended Act focuses on the sustainability and ongoing productivity of commercial, recreational or Aboriginal fisheries. The DFO Ecosystems and Fisheries Management has requested scientific advice concerning the implementation of the Offsetting Policy and the associated amendments to the Act. The intention is to use this science advice to support the development of additional guidance on determining offsetting requirements that could both aid proponents in the development of their offsetting plans and associated monitoring requirements, and assist DFO staff when assessing proponent submissions"--Context, p. [1].
