Development in Marine Areas

Recommendation 9:

Recommendation 10:

The Committee recommends that the Department of Fisheries and Oceans expedite its approval of the Tarium Niryutait Marine Protected Area. The Department should also provide the Fisheries Joint Management Committee with sufficient resources to administer the MPA.

Canada–US Bilateral Issues 

Recommendation 12:

The Committee recommends that the Government of Canada, in concert with the Inuvialuit, develop a policy regarding future fishing activity in the Beaufort Sea. In this regard, Canada should consider instituting a moratorium on commercial fishing in the Beaufort Sea (similar to the US Arctic Fishery Management Plan) on the Canadian side of the maritime border between Alaska and Yukon, west of the 141st meridian.
