A blue ribbon grouping of 600 scientists is urging the federal government to leave the Fisheries Act unchanged. They state that alleged proposed changes to the act would “jeopardize many important fish stocks and the lakes, estuaries and rivers that support them.” Responding to potential changes that would only protect fish of “economic, cultural, or ecological value”, the scientists point out that “all species are of ecological value.”
