We have an undefined Aboriginal Right now, but that is being implemented by individual fishers who go out and catch fish for food. A-Tlegay also provides us with food fish. Once there is a treaty, that will continue, and in accordance with an annual fishing plan developed by K’ómoks, based upon our needs.
We are currently working with the A-Tlegay member First Nations on a commercial component. A part of that fishery will include a K’ómoks community fishery which will be a commercial fishery for only K’ómoks members. While we are negotiating with the A-Tlegay First Nations to give us a stronger voice, and a portion of our commercial fishery will be exercised in conjunction with the A-Tlegay First Nations, there will also be a K’ómoks commercial fishery.
