  • The return of a Canadian Forces aircraft and its crew from Hakodate, Japan, marks the successful completion of the 2012 Operation High Seas Driftnet aerial surveillance mission in the North Pacific and highlights the close cooperation between Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Department of National Defence and the Government of Japan. Operation High Seas Driftnet is part of a collaborative international initiative of the North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission to deter illegal fishing activity using ongoing aerial and at-sea patrols, as well as sophisticated satellite imaging technology including Canada’s Radarsat-2.

  • The Government of Canada and the Government of the Russian Federation signed a Memorandum of Understanding on fisheries cooperation that aims to enhance cooperation between the Sides in preventing, deterring and eliminating illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing through the exchange of information on vessels entitled to fly the flag of one State seeking to enter or found in a port of the other State.
