Heiltsuk First Nation Protesting Commercial Herring Fisheries

Suddenly and without any warming, the commercial herring fishery recently stated to the Heiltsuk First Nation that stocks are too low to support the high harvest levels. Several RCMP and federal Department of Fisheries (DFO) boats were nearby to discourage protests from taking place. A DFO spokesperson could not be reached immediately for comment.
