The Big Picture
Nick Hawkins

A school of American sand lance swims off the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia. Canada is home to the world’s largest shoreline—some 151,000 miles—as well as some of the largest riverine systems, which had been managed by the same fisheries legislation for more than 150 years. But in June, Canada enacted a new fisheries law, one that incorporates Indigenous knowledge and improves and modernizes how the nation manages its fisheries. Pew has begun working in the Atlantic waters off Canada to conserve the rich diversity of life and rebuild depleted fish species through partnerships with Canada-based scientists, conservation and fishing organizations, Indigenous communities, and government agencies.
