Informational Placemats Project
A series of informational placemats by Intervale Associates that present current knowledge from collaborative research in Newfoundland and Labrador about species at risk. Eye-catching illustrations combined with science, "What You Can Do" tips, and the support of diverse stakeholder groups send an engaging and inclusive message about species recovery: all of us can help. Intervale uses placemats as tools for stewardship because it believes that family restaurants and community events are vibrant gathering places for knowledge exchange in rural areas. Across the Province, more than 350,000 placemats have been distributed to approximately 60 restaurants and community organizations. Placemats pictured here are: Atlantic cod, leatherback turtle, Labrador woodland caribou, and plants of the limestone barrens of the Great Northern Peninsula. For more information contact Kathleen Blanchard.
Produced with funding from Canada's Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk and many sponsoring groups such as the CURRA.
Slow Fish Canada 2014-15 Goals and Action Plan
The challenges facing small-scale fisheries are similar in many ways to the challenges facing small-scale farms. Both face urgent threats from increasingly industrialized food systems that feed international commodity markets. However, where farmers have been engaged for decades in advocating for small-scale terrestrial food production and regional marketing, fishers are new to the process of food justice and local food economies. Whereas Slow Food presently represents a rich network of farmers and their advocates, Slow Fish is faced with an immediate task: to engage fishers and fishing communities.
Just Fish: Ethics and Canadian Marine Fisheries
A team of humanists, natural scientists, and social scientists came together to examine the question of justice in the Canadian fisheries and to seek an ethical foundation upon which to base guidelines for fisheries policies and decision-making in the future. "Just Fish: Ethics and Canadian Marine Fisheries," the result of their work, argues that Canada could - and must - become a world leader in developing fisheries management institutions that can protect the legitimate interests of both fish and the fishers who depend upon them.
