British Columbia Young Fishermen’s Gathering

The second British Columbia Young Fishermen's Gathering will take place in Steveston from February 6-7, 2018. This two day workshop is aimed for young (under 55) fishermen and new entrants in BC’s fishing industry, and will provide a supportive environment to foster learning, networking and growth in the next generation in BC’s fishing fleets. Over the two days, we will cover the business of fishing (bookkeeping, financing, taxes, lenders, insurance, etc), basic science and management of BC’s fisheries, fishing policy, the history of fishing in BC, marine safety, seafood value chain and alternative marketing strategies. The BC Young Fishermen's Gathering is a great way to connect young fishermen with a wide variety of individuals working across the industry.

A limited number of travel bursaries are available. To register:
