Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans – October 16, 2012

“Lawrence MacAulay moved, — That, because the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) has been providing public policy makers both within Canada and around the world with exceptional and unique research for over 40 years in areas such as aquaculture and freshwater ecosystems, and given the impending timeline in which the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) will decide whether to remediate, shutter, or transfer the ELA to a third party, the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans immediately study the ELA, the research done onsite, its impacts on public policy, and the potential consequences of closing, remediating, or transferring the ELA to a third party.”
