National Code on Introductions and Transfers of Aquatic Organisms

At the Canadian Council of Fisheries and Aquaculture Ministers (CCFAM) meeting in Toronto in September 2001, the Council approved for release the National Code on Introductions and Transfers of Aquatic Organisms (the Code).


The Code's intent is to ensure that before introductions or transfers take place, they are evaluated on a consistent basis by all parties, using established criteria. The federal and provincial/territorial governments want to protect aquatic ecosystems while encouraging responsible use of aquatic resources for the benefit of Canadians.


The publication of the Code marks the beginning of an 18-month review period during which Canadians are invited to comment on the Code and its implementation.
