Building a River Community

In 2010/11 the Fraser River Salmon Table continued a body of work “To build a river community” that involves building collaboration among competing interests in the Fraser River salmon fishery amid region-wide changes that promote stewardship, sustainability and prosperity. The work included a best practices forum for experimental economic fisheries, building “River Manners”, Peacemaking, and setting common standards in fishery monitoring and reporting among a joint working group of First Nations and sports fishing organizations. Project activities involved partnerships with government and non-government organizations, fishers and fishing communities working together to build a collective vision for the future of the Fraser River salmon fishery.
