Lax Kw’alaams Fisheries Stewardship program is run through the Lax Kw’alaams Fisheries Department.

We conduct rigorous scientific research to monitor the condition and use of marine resources within the territory. Lax Kw’alaams representatives use information collected from this research in negotiations involving fishing rights or proposed industrial development.
