 “When properly regulated within sustainable ecological limits, international trade is vital to the economic well-being of the Atlantic Canadian fisheries. Unfortunately, the broad scope of new trade and investment treaties, such as the Canada- EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), poses considerable threat to fisheries regulation. At stake is the ability of Canadians to pursue public policies that curb domination of the fisheries by large corporations and help spread benefits more widely among independent fishers and coastal communities.”
