This book evaluates the employment of the Canadian Navy in a maritime enforcement role. It is comprised of an analysis of Canadian political and regulatory structures, and an analysis of naval enforcement operations. The book describes the marine geography of Atlantic Canada, and then analyses oceans policy initiatives. It discusses the mandates, jurisdictions and capabilities of federal departments with links to marine security and maritime enforcement, and the legal framework for the use of military forces for domestic operations. The book analyses the capabilities that the navy brings to maritime security and enforcement operations. As well, it examines the value of naval support to fisheries enforcement, public opinion about naval support to constabulary operations, and the effect that fisheries support missions have on the combat readiness of warships.Naval Gazing:
