Achieving our marine planning and stewardship goals in the Central Coast will require ongoing direct negotiation with provincial and federal governments—a spirit of cooperation and mutual respect, and a willingness to move toward a more sustainable and equitable future for our territories and people.
Central Coast Nations maintain Rights and Title throughout our territories, and resource management decisions must be made in consultation with our Nations.
Reaching our resource management and marine stewardship goals will require a commitment to co-governance across all sectors, including:
- regional-scale marine management planning, such as the Marine Plan Partnership (MaPP) for the Central Coast;
- collaborative management of Marine Protected Areas Network on the Central Coast;
- managing fishery regulations, closures and other forms of management; and
- adhering to guiding co-governance frameworks, including the FRRA—a collaborative effort to revitalize sustainable fisheries throughout the North Pacific Coast.
