______________________________________


The Great Lakes Fisheries Convention Act R.S.C., 1985, c. F-17 ("GLFCA") is Canada's implementing statute of the 1954 Convention on Great Lakes Fisheries between Canada and the United States of America (the "Convention"). The Convention is directed as preserving and maximizing Great Lakes fisheries through research and international joint efforts.

It operates through the bi-national Great Lakes Fishery Commission (link is to it's website). In particular it addresses the negative fisheries impact of the invasive sea lamprey, through it's Sea Lamprey Control Program (primarily through use of lampricide poisons).
