Fishermen's Forum

The Fisherman’s Forum was established to enhance interactions between stakeholders, providing opportunity for local fishing groups, researchers, provincial and federal regulators, and community leaders to meet each other and to discuss issues that affect both the fisheries and the communities that depend on them. Forum attendees are invited to participate in a variety of panels, presentations and open discussions.

The focus of 2014's forum was the effects of climate change on the fisheries. We were pleased that fishermen, researchers, and regulators gathered at this event to share their stories and observations as well as concerns about the fisheries in an uncertain climate future.
