Salish Seas LP

North Vancouver, British Columbia

Salish Seas Fisheries LP (Salish Seas) focuses on the management of commercial fishing licenses and the marketing of high-quality seafood products. Salish Seas operates both in and for the three partnering Nations: the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Tla’amin Nations. Through discussions around the Pacific Integrated Commercial Fisheries Initiative program, the Nations decided to work together to establish an organization with a size conducive for success in the increasingly consolidated fishing industry. The partnership has instilled a strong sense of ownership, purpose, and cooperation among directors, staff and fishers. By working together, each partnering Nation benefits from the innovative and unique fishery model focussed on long-term revenue generation for the three nations, First Nations involvement in the commercial fishing industry, capacity building and environmental sustainability.
