Environment committee  I'll be as quick as possible. I've already indicated that I think the department is at risk of people claiming that it might prioritize the industry over the protection of wild fish, and I've already explained why they are at risk of that. In terms of the research, to be very sp

Environment committee  In the case of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, there was a five-point plan to get to the 10% of marine protected areas. In the case of the natural capital and Statistics Canada, to be honest, they came up with that on their own, so it's a result of leadership within the d

Environment committee  Have you got the engagement? Have you got the resources? Have you done your communication? Has somebody said, “This is important”?

Environment committee  We found several. In terms of monitoring the health of wild fish, at this point the department had made a commitment to complete 10 risk assessments for the principal farmed-fish diseases.

Environment committee  We have to be really clear here. I was looking to see whether or not the government was prepared to implement...and we had seven specific criteria. Was a there commitment and responsibility identified? Canada got a tick mark for that. Have they established a governance structure

Environment committee  We were looking to see whether the department had that information. What we found is that nobody is monitoring the health of wild fish; therefore, the department doesn't really know if net pen farming is affecting wild salmon stocks. We also found that there was no threshold for

Environment committee  I can't make that link. We didn't look at that link in our report. I can tell you—and this is public information—that the State of Alaska and the State of Washington have decided to no longer have open net-pen aquaculture.

Environment committee  I don't know on what basis.... I do know that the department was supposed to complete 10 risk assessments on key diseases, and they had only completed one out of those 10.
