Fisheries

The Lheidli T'enneh's traditional territory includes the entire upper Fraser River watershed and portions of the Nechako and Peace watersheds. Those areas provide habitat for numerous stocks of resident species, including salmon, and the Lheidli T'enneh has a long and important relationship as stewards of those aquatic resources. Extensive use of the Territory's aquatic resources, including fish, continues today.

  1. Managing and monitoring the Community's Food, Social and Ceremonial harvest of salmon;
  2. Enumerating spawning Chinook in several key tributary streams to the upper Fraser River;
  3. Developing and implementing a rebuilding plan for the Bowron sockeye population;
  4. Research and monitoring of the Upper Fraser's white sturgeon population; and
  5. Inventorying, monitoring fisheries and developing management strategies for Central Interior burbot (ling) populations.
