The Marine Life Sanctuary Society, a coalition partner of the Future of Howe Sound Society feels the recovery is precarious.  Changes by the current federal Government to the Fisheries Act removes the protection and the necessary oversite that was in place.  In order to ensure we continue with this important protection of our ecosystem, they have two programs that we support.  The Stewardship program   and the Voluntary No Take Initiative.   To learn more visit their website http://mlssbc.com
