Last year our Nations had some major challenges with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) with respect to the management of crab and herring. This is nothing new. In our attempts to protect the resources in our territories, our Nations have often gone head-to-head with DFO. We’ve had to.
After a recent meeting with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), our Nations have some new hope for central coast crab. Working together, we agreed on necessary steps that will take us closer to a collaborative decision-making framework for managing this resource.
