Demand that the Canadian Fisheries Minister stops overfishing

The Canadian government’s mismanagement of fisheries is leading to overfishing of wild fish populations – making it impossible to conserve and support the long-term health of the ocean.

To address this threat, Oceana Canada and Only One are teaming up on a mission to stop overfishing in Canada and encourage Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Joyce Murray, to make an abundant, healthy ocean a priority for coastal fishing communities, food security, and our planet.

His business dates back to 1961, but Alberta Trout Inc. (formally Allen's Trout Farm) hasn't hatched fish since 2013. That's when the Elbow River's floodwaters destroyed much of Allen's property and the ponds from which some 250,000 fish were sold every year.

Allen's property was quarantined by the province shortly after the flood, after the natural aquifer where he grows his fish was contaminated with whirling disease.
