Central Coast First Nations marine use planning

Central Coast First Nations have been sustainably managing the natural resources in our territories for tens of thousands of years.

Over the last decade we have successfully written land use plans for our territories. Today we are beginning to see the ecological, economics, and cultural benefits of our plans and management. From 2007-2010 our Nations also wrote marine use plans for our territories and harmonized these individual plans to create a Central Coast First Nations Marine Use Plan. We are now working to implement the directions in the our marine use plan.
