Wild fish is local, sustainable, and healthy food. This is often overlooked in the creation of fisheries and food policy, in marine governance processes, and in environmental activism with the result of hindering the development of sustainable coastal food systems in B.C. and beyond. We collaborate with several organizations working on food sovereignty and security in the province to ensure sustainable, wild seafood is better integrated into B.C. diets.
This work has included collaborating with the Local Catch Network, the Island Food Hubs, and with Slow Fish International to make local seafood more available in B.C. through policy reform.
Jim McIsaac and Cailyn Siider are both involved in this work. Please contact them for more information.
