Project title: Canadian fisheries and aquaculture law and policy overview research

The project assesses the current state of integrated fisheries management plans in different Canadian regions, with a focus on existing attempts to provide for community input into sustainable fisheries management. The research will support the development of alternative models of governance with a higher capability for both adaptive management (in the face of climate change) and improved involvement of affected communities.
