Mr. Speaker, the small fish protocol is actually within science advice.
However, I want to make the House aware that the hon. member went to the press a few weeks about our herring policy and about the seiner policy. He led people to believe that we are allowing more small fish to be fished.
I want to point out that it was the Liberal government back in 1998 that put in place a 35% small fish protocol, which we actually lowered.
