Pacific salmon strategy initiative

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.

Overview

Protecting and rebuilding wild salmon stocks is critically important to First Nations. While many First Nations have their own rebuilding processes and strategies, barriers such as lack of funding and capacity have hindered the implementation of rebuilding activities. Meanwhile, federal agencies also struggle to respond to First Nations requests, or enter into collaborative partnerships for restoration and rebuilding.

FNFC is supporting First Nations in BC to articulate clear and coherent strategies for the conservation and rebuilding of declining Pacific salmon, and their goals for rebuilding stocks of concern in their territories. We’re also helping to develop and share First Nations-led initiatives and mechanisms to align with funding opportunities. Clarity and transparency are needed for First Nations to coordinate their salmon rebuilding efforts, and to understand existing processes and resources to support First Nations-led projects.
