This Marine Finfish Aquaculture Policy is one part of implementing our Declaration, and is an exercise of our inherent Title and Rights. This Marine Finfish Aquaculture Policy supplements the shíshálh Nation Lands and Resources Decision-Making Policy by identifying some specific additional decision-making factors and standards regarding how shíshálh will make decisions with respect to marine finfish aquaculture in our Territory. This Marine Finfish Aquaculture Policy has been developed to reflect and carry forward the sacred trust we hold for current and future generations of the shíshálh People, in a manner which respects our Title and Rights, international legal standards, and the common law. This Marine Finfish Aquaculture Policy outlines expectations for the Crown, proponents, and all others who seek to regulate or benefit from the use of marine finfish aquaculture within our Territory. Both the Crown and proponents seeking to use shíshálh marine finfish aquaculture resources and to engage in consultation and accommodation should fully familiarize themselves with the shíshálh Nation Lands and Resources Decision-Making Policy and this Policy.
