Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is pleased to inform you that the 2012
draft Management Plan for the Sea Otter is now undergoing regional


The Government of Canada downlisted the Sea Otter from a Threatened
species to a species of Special Concern under the Species at Risk Act
(SARA) in March, 2009.  In accordance with SARA, the Minister of
Fisheries and Oceans is responsible for developing a Management Plan for
aquatic species listed as Special Concern under SARA. To fulfill this
obligation, DFO has developed a draft Management Plan for this species.
Management plans are documents that describe species information,
threats to the species, management goals and objectives, and measures
for the conservation of the species. 


DFO would like to invite you to provide feedback on the draft Management
Plan via the Regional SARA Consultation webpage, at
<http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/saraconsultations>  where the document
will be available for comment from September 27th to October 29th, 2012.
In doing so, interested parties may provide input to DFO to aid in
finalizing the document.


If you have any questions, please contact us at (604) 666-7907 or email
sara at pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca <mailto:sara at pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca> .
