Cannery Closure - adjacency through fleet separation and owner operator -

Problem: Shore jobs are leaving B.C.


  • Adjacency legislation

  • Community involvment in: (be part of) Community Regional Salmon Development, Groundfish Development Authority, Community Licence/Quota Banks etc

  • Linkage of communities with advisory boards (eg Alaska Board of Fish)

  • Communities be invited to participate in every advisory process

  • Province buy high Omega 3 fish to use in hospitals, schools, food banks etc all locally processed(example: Aka)

  • Community freezers should be built to encourage local processing and sales of frozen value added product

  • Tax incentives and dis-incentives should be used by the Province to encourage local value added processing
