Canada and Americas Conservation Enhancement Act
The America’s Conservation Enhancement (ACE) Act is moving closer to becoming law. What does it mean and how does it affect Canada such as keeping invasive carp out of the Great Lakes? What about lead fishing tackle? The American Sportfishing Association says the Act is a positive development for the U.S. $125 billion recreational fishing economy that supports over 800,000 jobs. The National Wildlife Federation is also supports the ACT — or at least mostly.
