Mr. Scott Simms (Bonavista—Gander—Grand Falls—Windsor, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, today is World Fisheries Day, and this is a resource that feeds millions of people around the world each and every day. However, more than 70% of the world's resources of fisheries are fully exploited or depleted.
More than a year ago the government embarked on a strategy to combat illegal overfishing on the Grand Banks off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Could the minister please update the House on this initiative?
