New Management Plan for Gwaii Haanas

The management plan for Gwaii Haanas has been published.

The Gwaii Haanas Archipelago Management Board (AMB) accepted most of the plan submitted by the fishing industry, which met or exceeded all of the cultural and ecological targets while reducing the impact on the fisheries operating in the area. That being said there was an annual loss of about $8 million in landed value from fisheries, which were impacted, and unfortunately for the tuna, fishing areas off the coast were closed to access.
