Amplifying the voices of rights holders
Pillars of our work
Programs and projects
To support First Nations priorities We host processes, programs and initiatives related to fisheries policy, management, habitat, environmental protection, and economic development as outlined in the BC First Nations Fisheries Action Plan.
Feature: salmon parks
FNFC is happy to support and share the Mowachaht/Muchalaht and Nuchatlaht First Nations concept of Salmon Parks. These parks in the traditional territories of Mowachaht/Muchalaht and Nuchatlaht First Nations aim to protect the wild salmon from the impacts of industrial logging of old growth forests. They are the focus of an Indigenous-led conservation plan to restore wild salmon vital to the communities and wildlife that depend on them. This initiative supported by Uu-a-thluk, the aquatic resource management department of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth Tribal Council and CPAWS.
