Canadian Government restricts possible Beaufort Fishery
« on: October 18, 2014, 12:51:35 AM »
The federal government has implemented a ban on new commercial fisheries in the western Arctic until more research can be done.

The policy, announced Friday, has long been requested by environmental groups and follows a similar American decision that was enacted five years ago.

Note the qualifier. New Commercial.

I suspect Inuits and other First Nations are not affected.
