Fisheries and Integrated Resources
The APC Fisheries and Integrated Resources Department is responsible for research, analysis, and development of policy alternatives and programs for all aspects of fisheries for our member communities. We support and work cooperatively with First Nation Leadership, Treaty Tables, Tribal Councils, AAROMs, Fisheries Directors, Academia, NGOs and Federal/Provincial Departments. Our work includes supporting the commercial communal fisheries operations of member communities and fostering long-term collaboration and management with communities and First Nation organizations on fisheries issues. We have a variety of projects and initiatives currently underway.
