Gaining Public Support

Problem: The public is not educated on fish matters: Economic Social and Biological- How do we counter misinformation?


  • Educate, educate, educate

  • Participate in community events

  • salmon in classrooms

  • local hatchery/enhancement groups

  • habitat cleaning

  • West Coat Fishermen Facebook Group – many fishermen belong

  • Save our BC fisheries website – petition

  • Be part of other groups like food security / environmental groups

  • UFAWU-Unifor has a Fishermen Page / Shoreworker Page and Environment Page and a website which answers organizational questions but is not directed at public education.
