Canada is an ocean nation. Eight of 10 provinces and all three territories—-home to 86 percent of the Canadian population—are adjacent to salt water. But are we failing our oceans?

Our ocean geography carries with it global leadership and stewardship responsibilities to address stressors that threaten ocean health. In light of this, the Royal Society of Canada convened an expert panel to address several questions: What are the past, current, and projected trends in marine biodiversity? What challenges do climate change, fisheries, and aquaculture pose to Canada's ability to sustain this biodiversity? Have we fulfilled our obligations to sustain marine biodiversity for the benefit of current and future generations?

The Centre for Coastal Science and Management at Simon Fraser University offered a free public presentation on Thursday, February 2 at SFU Vancouver on the findings of this panel, which was chaired by Dr. Jeff Hutchings of Dalhousie University. The presentation was called Sustaining Canada's Marine Biodiversity: Responding to the Challenges Posed by Climate Change, Fisheries, and Aquaculture.
