Re: Rivers Inlet and Smith Inlet Sockeye Fisheries 2018
Rivers Inlet: DFO and the Wuikinuxv First Nation are working on a technical paper to calibrate the Didson counter with escapement and to determine the required escapement numbers for Rivers Inlet. This paper is supposed to be ready by Christmas 2018. This is meant to resolve issues between the Wuikinuxv and DFO and set up a commercial fishing plan for all.
Smith Inlet: DFO and the Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxda'xw (GNN First Nation) have been in discussions for two years regarding many issues including fishing. The Union has been in contact with the GNN and has offered to organize a meeting to assist the GNN to resolve commercial fishing issues. Click here to see the UFAWU-Unifor June letter.
