I call this meeting to order. I'd like to thank our guest for joining us today.
Mr. Zealand, we've been trying to connect here for a little bit. We certainly do appreciate your patience in working with us to try to make the accommodation work for all involved.
As you're aware, our study is on recreational fisheries in Canada. We certainly appreciate your taking the time to meet with the committee members to make a presentation and answer committee members' questions. I'm sure our clerk has already advised you that we generally allow about 10 minutes for opening comments and remarks before we proceed to questions and answers. Members are constrained by a certain timeframe, and in light of that, I'd ask you to try to keep your responses as concise as possible to allow as many questions as possible throughout the process.
Whenever you're ready, Mr. Zealand, if you'd like to go ahead and make your opening comments, we'd certainly appreciate it. The floor is yours.

Thank you, Monsieur Lapointe.
The following motion has been moved by Mr. Lapointe:
That the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans undertake a study as soon as possible to examine the effects of the declining American Eel population in order to develop an action plan, jointly with the plan prepared by the Quebec Department of Energy and Natural Resources, designed to: (1) reverse the decline in the population; (2) increase the economic activity generated both domestically and internationally by this fishery; (3) preserve the eel fishing techniques in Kamouraska as part of our intangible marine heritage; and (4) designate the American Eel as a species of "special concern" under the Species at Risk Act, and that the Committee report its findings and recommendations to the House at the earliest opportunity.
On the motion, Mr. Kamp....

Before we rise here today I want to echo a lot of the sentiments, Randy. As chair of this committee it's been a real pleasure to work with you over the last almost seven years. Certainly I think we've done a lot of good things here together as a committee, and to all committee members today, it's been a great experience working with all of you.
One of the things that I take a lot of pride in as part of this committee for the last seven years is that we've always had unanimous reports. That's something that other committees cannot say. We may not have produced a lot of reports at times but we have always had unanimous reports and we've gone that extra mile. I certainly appreciate the efforts that all of you have made over the last seven years. I especially appreciate your contribution to that, Randy.
Thank you very much.
