Two Conservative members of Parliament from New Brunswick are defending the latest round of cuts to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, saying the department's research capacity won't be hurt.

DFO's budget is being reduced by nearly $80 million. Late last week, about 16 scientists and librarians received layoff notices at the St. Andrews Biological Station.

The library at the St. Andrews Biological Station will close and library services will be consolidated on the west coast, in Halifax and in Ottawa.
