Fisheries

Fisheries along BC’s north coast are hugely important in both coastal societies and the coastal ecosystem. Commercial, recreational, aboriginal and aquaculture fisheries occur in and around the Kitimat Fjord System. In addition to their cultural and economic importance, fisheries here, like everywhere, have a substantial trophic impact that must be taken into consideration for projects like the Bangarang.

This Backgrounder outlines the target species, harvest methods, value, and recent landings trends for these distinct but linked fisheries.

This and other Backgrounders are available on the Reports page.
