Update on work underway to broaden access to Arctic Surf Clam fishery

| Fisheries and Oceans Canada | statements

The decision to introduce Indigenous participation in the Arctic Surf Clam fishery is consistent with the Government of Canada’s commitment to developing a renewed relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples. Enhancing access to the Arctic Surf Clam fishery broadens the distribution of benefits from this public resource, and is a powerful step toward reconciliation. The benefits of this lucrative fishery—and public resource—can increase the economic well-being of Indigenous communities.

| Fisheries and Oceans Canada | statements

OTTAWA – With the longest coastline in the world, the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic oceans have been part of Canadians’ way of life for centuries, and they have helped to build Canada’s history and sustain our economy over generations. We all want our oceans to remain productive, sustainable, and able to support healthy marine ecosystems and coastal communities. As Canada’s Oceans Minister, these are priorities for me, and this Oceans Day is an opportunity to reflect on our accomplishments and recommit to the continued protection of our oceans.
