SUFB 337: Oil Exploration In An MPA And Ocean Gummy Bears Clogging Fishing Gear On West Coast

Does it make sense to allow Oil and Gas Exploration within the boundaries of a Marine Protected Area and still call it protected? Trudeau's government thinks it does.

Take a listen and find out how.

Also on the show...there are these "Gummy Bear-Like" organisms that are frustrating the hell out of fishers along the US Pacific Coast...find out how during this episode.
