NAFTA oversight group calls for investigation into B.C. fish farms

NAFTA - Vancouver Sun
OTTAWA — A Montreal body set up under the North American Free Trade Agreement to monitor environmental stewardship in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico is calling for an investigation into federal enforcement of the Fisheries Act in relation to B.C. fish farms.

The decision, announced Thursday, is in response to a formal complaint from a small U.S.-Canada coalition of environmentalists, fishermen and a West Coast First Nation…

The complaint was filed in 2012 by the San Francisco-based Center for Biological Diversity, the University of Denver’s environmental law clinic, Chief Bob Chamberlain of the Kwikwasu’tinuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation near Alert Bay, the San Francisco-based Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations, and Alexandra Morton of the Pacific Coast Wild Salmon Society in B.C.
