Aboriginal Fishing in Québec: Assessments and issue
Governance, Conservation and Development


AMIK’s public symposium on Aboriginal Fishing “Aboriginal Fishing in Québec: Assessments and Issues — Governance, Conservation and Development” was held on November 30 2016 at the Musée Shaputuan in Uashat. The conference, held in honour of AMIK’s ten year anniversary, had the main objective of promoting the expertise and the increasing role Quebec’s First Nations (Innu, Micmac, Malecite, Cree and Inuit) in the fishing industry, in terms of management, research, development, protection of TIK and the environment.
