Fisheries

Our people, down through the many generations of our ancestors, are expert fishers and Clayoquot Sound is central to our history, culture, economy and very being. 

In 2000, parts of our territories were designated by UNESCO as a biosphere bringing further worldwide attention. 

The ecosystem here has a global impact for all life on our planet! 


As stewards, the Indigenous Fisheries continue to press concerns over issues such as the impact of fish farms and the introduction of Atlantic salmon to our waters. 

Additionally, our Fisheries face a problem with an over-population of sea otters that led us to question:

How do we balance endangered species with the destruction of local sea life such as fish, crab, clams, mollusks, and other shellfish?
