I think that's a very interesting idea and a worthwhile one, MP Hanley, that I will explore further.
I did go to someone very knowledgeable in my own personal network about why we are finding the U.S. fishing in pooled stocks when Canada has shut the fisheries down. My understanding is that the precautionary approach that is built into the Fisheries Act does require us to be more precautionary than the approach that the Americans are still taking, which is based on maximum sustainable yield.
My view personally is that the American fisheries science and assessment process needs to catch up to the precautionary approach, and that has been the core of my conversations with Dr. Spinrad. I also raised that at the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon last June; at COP15 in Montreal, which was about biodiversity, including in the oceans; and at IMPAC5 in Vancouver last month.
I have been raising this as something that I aspire to see, which is a parallel precautionary approach with U.S. partners in these stocks, and the idea of a specific summit is an interesting one, I think, and we'll explore that, so thank you.
