Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans.
Last week in response to a question about gill-netting of salmon, the minister stated that the preference was to negotiate the reduction of gill-netting by agreements as opposed to court action. I agree with that direction providing we can actually conclude such agreements.
February 24, 1993
I would like to ask the minister if he can provide details of the number of agreements reached, for example with the 15 bands in New Brunswick in 1992. How are such agreements proceeding with respect to negotiations for the 1993 season?
