We are currently developing a plan for the protection of critical ecosystems and habitats. Protection includes fisheries management plans, identification of critical spawning habitat, identification of critical rearing habitat for salmon, and development of protection options for other species.


West Coast Aquatic seeks to produce innovative solutions to coastal concerns, and strengthen the understanding and relationships between parties that share a common interest in the health and wealth of aquatic resources, businesses, and communities. West Coast Aquatic is comprised of: a collaborative governance board that brings together governments, key sectors and communities to develop consensus-based outcomes for marine resources on the West Coast of Vancouver Island; a management association that provides technical and administrative support to the activities of the governance board; and a charitable organization that administers stewardship activities.
