Shellfish & Fisheries Project

Recipient: Haisla Fisheries Commission
Amount: 56000

Description: Kitamaat Village Council and Haisla Fisheries Commission have established shellfish test sites with the intention of developing a shellfish business in the area.

The purpose of this project was to construct two additional rafts and purchase some necessary equipment for the project, including a suitable boat with which to safely access the experimental plots. Aside from safety, this project linked to economic development by making it possible for Haisla to compete for a variety of employment opportunities in the Kitamaat area, including research, fishery and forestry contracts.
