 IA DNR: Canada Goose Harvest management
Giant Canada geese were not considered in the equation because their numbers were insignificant (an estimated 20,000 in the early 1960’s).
Today, Canada goose hunting regulations are complicated by increasing numbers of giant Canada geese, the mixing of different races of Canada geese on migration and wintering areas that used to be specific for a single population, and the fact that some of these populations are increasing while others are decreasing.
In Iowa, the giant Canada goose population in the northcentral and northwestern parts of the state appeared to have saturated most of the available nesting habitat in 1996 and was believed capable of sustaining some additional hunting pressure.

 US-Canada Lobster Dispute
Canada contended that the 1989 amendment was a disguised restriction on international trade, adopted in response to the perception in the U.S. Congress that American lobstermen were at a competitive disadvantage.
Both Canada and the United States agree that the proportion of total lobster landings in Canada below the U.S. Federal minimum lobster size requirements was between 8 percent and 8.4 percent in 1990, 12.1 percent and 12.4 percent in 1991 and 16.1 percent and 16.9 percent in 1992.
Canada asserted that the number of live lobsters legally harvested from Canadian waters which do not meet U.S. federal minimum size requirement and were exported to the United States were actually much higher: 18 percent in 1990, 26 percent in 1991 and 34 percent in 1992.
