Protecting Cod And Coral Off Eastern Canada

Decisions made at a meeting of the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization will help cod recover and protect vulnerable cold-water corals off the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador. WWF is encouraged by the move at NAFO's annual meeting in Lisbon to commit to protecting marine ecosystems and adopting precautionary approaches. This commitment was accepted by a consensus of parties of NAFO in their newly revised convention.
