After cod stocks did not rebound in 1994, the government enacted bans on all other major cod fisheries and spent more than $4 billion to compensate displaced fishers.
In 1997-1998, Canada partially reopened some fisheries, but the stocks were not recovering.
Cod fishermen haul in their catch.
M16_WITH4888_06_SE_C16.indd 415 had recommended, and many feared fishing would decimate the fishing limit.
Researchers and resource managers are keeping a close eye on popula Closed to tions to see how they fare over time.

The steps were too little and late.
Further restrictions were enacted because the cod were not recovering.

There are signs of hope in the Georges Bank.
The eastern coast of Newfoundland was reopened to haddock and yellow fish tail.
The stock of sea scallops was showing some signs of recovery.
Some thought the decision to reopen the area to fishing was ill-advised because of the protection of the oceans and no-fishing areas.
It is possible that fish can one day recover and thrive.
Most of our body of water is covered by ocean water.
The world ocean covers 70% of the planet's surface.
