An evening discussion: Protecting Marine Life in Howe Sound and off Bowen's Shores

On April 24, we participated in a session with Roy Mulder from the Marine Life Sanctuaries Society (MLSS), who led a discussion on strategies for rockfish protection.

Topics included:

  • Welcome & Introduction
  • Video & Presentation
  • General discussion on how can we help MLSS achieve their objectives throughout Howe Sound, developing a Bowen-specific strategy, organizing our efforts, action plans

Of particular importance is identifying exactly who is fishing for rock fish in Howe Sound, so that we can develop specific tactics to communicate to them and change their behaviour. We have to talk to those who are a threat so that we can make a difference and save rock fish. While protection must go on forever, in business terms it would be helpful if we can develop a plan with goals which follow ‘SMART’ criteria – Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Responsibilities Identified, Timelines.
