Abstract The Fisheries Act, Canada’s primary statute for the conservation of fish and fish habitat and the management of fisheries resources, was amended in 2012. The amendments focus the Act’s regulatory regime for the protection of fish and fish habitat on managing threats to the sustainability and ongoing productivity of Canada’s commercial, recreational and Aboriginal fisheries. They also provide enhanced compliance and protection tools; provide for clarity, certainty and consistency of regulatory requirements through the use of standards and regulations; and enable partnerships with agencies and organisations best placed to provide fisheries protection services.
