To ensure Canada's aquatic ecosystems and fisheries are sustainable and economically successful, DFO safeguards Canada’s waters and manages its fisheries, oceans and freshwater resources. This federal agency is responsible for legislation around oceans, fisheries, aquatic species at risk, coast guard, coastal fisheries and harbours.
