DEPARTMENT OF FISHERIES AND OCEANS

DEPARTMENT OF FISHERIES AND OCEANS

FISHERIES ACT

Notice of intent with respect to fisheries management in the Scott Islands Protected Marine Area regulations

The purpose of this notice is to outline the intention of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) to make regulations pursuant to the Fisheries Act for the management of fisheries within the proposed Scott Islands Protected Marine Area (PMA) and in support of the conservation objectives of the area.

This notice does not replace prepublication of the proposed regulations in the Canada Gazette, Part I, or DFO’s duty to consult with the affected and interested parties as part of the regulatory process. DFO intends to prepublish the proposed regulations in the Canada Gazette, Part I, within two calendar years.

Context

The Scott Islands PMA, located off the northwest tip of Vancouver Island in the Pacific Ocean, has been designated by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) under the Canada Wildlife Act. The primary conservation objectives of the area will be to conserve migratory seabirds, species at risk, and the habitats, ecosystem linkages, and marine resources that support these species for the long term.

The Scott Islands support the highest concentration of breeding seabirds in the Canadian Pacific, providing important ecological breeding and nesting habitat for over one million nesting seabirds annually. The marine waters surrounding the Scott Islands have an abundance of small fish and zooplankton that provide a key foraging area for migratory birds that travel vast distances to feed, including several species that have been identified as being at risk globally by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The marine area around the islands is highly productive and hosts a diversity of marine mammals and fish, including several marine mammal species at risk.

Within the PMA, DFO will continue to manage fisheries in accordance with the Fisheries Act. In the waters around Lanz, Cox, Beresford and Sartine islands, there is a Rockfish Conservation Area (RCA) where most types of commercial and recreational fishing are prohibited by way of a Variation Order issued under the Fisheries Act.

Currently, 80% of the Scott Islands PMA is closed to bottom trawl fisheries for groundfish by way of Variation Order 2018-110, which was issued under section 6 of the Fishery (General) Regulations.

Purpose and expected outcomes of the proposed regulatory amendments

In support of the conservation objectives of the Scott Islands PMA, DFO is proposing to make new fisheries regulations under the Fisheries Act to (1) prohibit fishing of three key forage fish species that serve as a food source for seabirds in the PMA (Pacific sand lance, Pacific saury and North Pacific krill); and (2) prohibit groundfish bottom trawling within portions of the area consistent with the existing Variation Order 2018-110. The future regulations would not impact the current status of the above-described fisheries in the Scott Islands PMA. However, the future regulations could be made to restrict other fishing activities that would be deemed, based on best available science, to pose a risk to the conservation objectives of the PMA.

The proposed regulations would provide a more permanent regulatory approach to fisheries management within the boundaries of the Scott Islands PMA. This approach would not alter current fishing activity for the three forage species outside of the boundaries; fishing for these three species does not currently occur within the PMA boundaries. The degree to which future fishing activities could be impacted by the proposed regulations would depend on whether they are, based on best available science, deemed to pose a risk to the conservation objectives of the PMA.

The proposed regulations would assist in achieving the Scott Islands PMA’s conservation objectives over the long term by ensuring a more permanent fisheries management regulatory tool is available to restrict or prohibit fishing and ensure the PMA’s biodiversity is protected. This proposed approach to fisheries management would also help focus management, including monitoring and enforcement within the PMA.
