Government of Canada announces members of Atlantic Seal Science Task Team
“Our Government strongly believes in evidence-based decision making and today’s announcement reinforces that. The Atlantic Seal Science Task Team is a direct response to the concerns raised by commercial fish harvesters in Eastern Canada about the impact seal predation is having on fish stocks. I will continue to work closely with fishers, researchers, environmental organizations, and other partners to ensure our decisions are based on the best available science and all aspects of this issue are considered.”
