Fisheries and Oceans Canada has released their Pacific Region Cold-Water Coral and Sponge Conservation Strategy.

The goal of the strategy is to “conserve the health and integrity of Canada’s Pacific Ocean cold-water coral and sponge species, communities and their habitats as valued components of a healthy and productive ecosystem providing for economic and ecological value and sustainable use.”

The strategy identifies existing and future activities and management measures for cold-water coral and sponge conservation by Fisheries and Oceans Canada.  It helps regional partners and stakeholders understand how our existing programs and activities are aligned with cold-water coral and sponge conservation by presenting objectives, strategies and actions in a transparent manner.

For more information on the Pacific Region Cold-Water Coral and Sponge Strategy please contact Bruce Reid, Oceans Program Manager at 604-666-0209, or by email at Bruce.Reid@dfo-mpo.gc.ca.  To download an electronic copy of the strategy please visit DFO’s website at:
