In the man­age­ment and con­ser­va­tion of resources, what does it mean to coex­ist? This week on Ter­ra Infor­ma we are joined by PhD stu­dent Krista Trem­blett to bring you a sto­ry on Indige­nous-led approach­es to fish­eries man­age­ment in Atlantic Cana­da. We explore the his­tor­i­cal prece­dence and Treaty com­mit­ments that guar­an­tee Indige­nous rights to fish for a mod­er­ate liveli­hood. And we inves­ti­gate the recent con­flict that erupt­ed between non-Indige­nous com­mer­cial fish­ers and Indige­nous fish­ers fol­low­ing the self-reg­u­lat­ed mod­er­ate liveli­hood fish­ery launched by Sipekne’katik First Nation.

Many thanks to our guest Krista Trem­blett for con­tribut­ing her knowl­edge to this episode. You can learn more about the Sipekne’katik mod­er­ate liveli­hood fish­ery and how you can sup­port their ongo­ing efforts here.

To learn more about Indige­nous fish­ing liveli­hoods in a dif­fer­ent con­text, the Mi’g­maq of Lis­tuguj, Que­bec, check out the new doc­u­men­tary series Gespe’ge­wa’­gi — the Last Land, direct­ed by Chisa­s­i­bi film­mak­er Ernie Webb.
