Carving Up Our Oceans: Who Gets a Say?
Oct. 9, 2013, 7 p.m., Memorial Hall, UNB, Fredericton Campus
The uses to which we put ocean space are multiplying. Fishing and transport are being asked to make way for aquaculture, tidal power, oil and gas development, tourism, and coastal amenities. Who gets to decide how ocean space will be carved up among these many demands? Who allocates public versus private rights in the ocean?
In her talk, Dr. Melanie Wiber uses a case study from the Bay of Fundy and provides context for audience discussion about a fair process for decision-making.
