Jamie Snook: Enhancing Fisheries Co-Management in the Eastern Arctic
March 3rd is World Wildlife Day. In this spirit, the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation is sharing an article co-authored by 2017 Scholar Jamie Snook published in Northern Public Affairs entitled “Enhancing Fisheries Co-Management in the Eastern Arctic.” The article was informed by a gathering of three Eastern Arctic co-management boards to discuss commercial fisheries and how decision-making responsibility is organized.
Jamie Snook is the executive director of the Torngat Joint Fisheries Board. The article argues for a need to co-operate across land claim regions, working together for shared species and learn from each other in order to improve how land claims are implemented.
