An indigenous group criticizes what #x27;he calls out “mismanagement” of aquaculture in British Columbia by Fisheries and Oceans Canada and calls for the separation of the ministry's responsibilities for regulation and promotion.

The First Nations Wild Salmon Alliance believes the department is plagued by conflicts of interest due to its dual role. Alliance Chairman Bob Chamberlin describes the role as a sort of correction of his own duties.

According to Bob Chamberlin, the alliance wants that the ministry sticks to its primary obligation, which is to protect waters and manage fisheries and ocean resources.

The group is also calling for the establishment of a truly independent scientific committee to help the government make decisions about marine life in British Columbia.

A spokesperson for Fisheries and Oceans Canada said the department was preparing a response to the criticisms made by the alliance.

Bob Chamberlin and the alliance criticize federal fishing policy in British Columbia. Bob Chamberlin discusses industry involvement in Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) reports on issues such as the risk posed by fish farming to wild salmon stocks.

Bob Chamberlin believes that such participation in scientific reports leads to a predetermined result that would benefit the industry.

Based on our considerable professional experience, I reaffirm that Canada should establish a truly independent scientific advisory body to directly advise the decision-makers and recommend new research without being subject to special interests inside or outside the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, he says.
