How We Help:

Negotiate access to commercial fishing licenses, leases and permits, and the acquisition of vessels, gear and equipment.

Undertake identification of our Community’s Commercial fish harvesters’ interests, skills, knowledge, experience, training needs and types of fisheries throughout all coastal waters of Nova Scotia.

Research and develop our Community’s commercial fishing strategies: identifying species needs, equipment, vessel & gear needs, facilities and infrastructure needs, home port and wharfage needs.

Undertake training and human resource development to enhance the capacity of our Community’s commercial fish harvesters to effectively, efficiently and safely participate in the Commercial fishery for greater success, employment and economic well-being.

Promote and expand the administration capacity of our Community’s Communal Commercial fishing enterprise to become self-reliant and continue to grow to create greater opportunities and greater participation for our Community members in our Aboriginal Communal Commercial fishery initiatives.

Research and plan for the establishment of an important component of modern commercial fishing industry – our trading and marketing of ocean quality seafood.

Negotiate and plan the participation in exploratory and developmental fisheries.
