National aquaculture working group

We build processes, capacity, and relationships to help First Nations in BC influence the integrated planning and management of Pacific fisheries and aquatic resources at the province-wide level.

Haida Gwaii Shellfish Aquaculture – by Council of the Haida Nation


The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) hosts a National Aquaculture Working Group (NAWG) that facilitates dialogue and provides technical support to First Nations on national aquaculture initiatives. The complex landscape of aquaculture management in BC is distinct from other regions in Canada; FNFC regularly engages with the NAWG to bring forward interests and perspectives from First Nations in BC, and to elevate their unique position in national-level dialogue on aquaculture. FNFC also supports the participation of ACC delegates in NAWG processes through collaborative NAWG-ACC meetings and regular communications with the AFN.
