The forum will include information and discussion on the recent report prepared by the Federal/Provincial Bait Working Group titled “Overview of Bait Supply and Demand in Atlantic Canada and Quebec”.

In addition, the forum will provide a venue to raise awareness, share information and facilitate networking.
