Tsleil-Waututh partnered with the Musqueam and Tla’amin Nations to create Salish Seas; we lease commercial fisheries licenses and harvest fisheries products.
All of our licenses are leased to community members from the three partner nations. We currently provide opportunities for prawn, crab, halibut, herring, salmon, and sablefish commercial fisheries. 50% of profits are split equally among the three nations to support community programs.
Each nation benefits from our unique fishery model focused on long-term revenue generation, Indigenous involvement, capacity building, and environmental sustainability. We produce solid revenues and employment opportunities for our nations.
