The Heiltsuk Nation is welcoming changes to the management plan for Pacific Herring.
The Tribal council and DFO have agreed to changes to the management plan after the community raised concerns about the health of the stock.
Chief Councillor Marilyn Slatt says she’s pleased the two sides have committed to working together.
