The province recently asked the federal government to not designate any new maritime protected areas in our waters.
MPAs restrict activities in the oceans such as fishing or oil exploration.
MP for South Shore-St. Margaret's Bernadette Jordan says the request is premature.
"I don't know that there's any more actually on the radar for Nova Scotia at the moment. I haven't seen that list that says, you know, we're going to do this, this or this."
Jordan says Parliament would not impose new maritime protected areas unilaterally on the province.
