Upcoming NAFO reform meeting last best chance for cod recovery – WWF

HALIFAX, Sept. 6 /CNW/ – The upcoming Annual Meeting of the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO), to be held in Dartmouth, NS, September 18-22, represents the last best chance for cod recovery according to WWF. A critical part of the agenda will be discussions on dramatic reforms to how fisheries on the nose and tail of the Grand Banks are managed. The talks have the potential to significantly change these fisheries to become more sustainable. In a report released today, WWF-Canada outlines the key measures that should be used to test if NAFO is serious about reform, or if other more drastic measures need to be considered.
