Commercial herring fishery closure in Haida waters

The Council of the Haida Nation has released a statement saying they will be continuing the closure of the commercial herring fishery in traditional Haida waters in order for stocks to rebuild.

The statement says after consultations with various stakeholders, the CHN have given notice that the fishery would remain closed in 2016.

It adds the closure does not affect the traditional roe-on-kelp fishery.

The latest closure follows a 2014 closure in which the CHN negotiated with industry, and a 2015 closure that required a court injunction.
