Sustainable Fisheries

Fisheries are sustainable when they sustain marine ecosystems and coastal communities across generations. The wellbeing of our oceans is woven into that of the people whose livelihoods depend on them. This holistic understanding of sustainability drives our work advocating for sustainable fisheries. 

We have partnered with Dr. Nathan Bennett, from UBC’s Institute for Resources, Environment, and Sustainability, to identify the most pressing access issues facing B.C. fishermen. We are active in MPA planning and governance, and are also pushing to reform fishermen's legal access to our fisheries.
