Fishery Closures Atlas

Fishing, both recreational and commercial, play, and will continue to play, an important role in the culture and livelihood of the people of Haida Gwaii. To ensure that healthy fish populations and diverse, thriving habitats exist for future generations, we must work together towards sustainable management practices.

The Fishery Closures Atlas consists of a series of maps outlining the areas around Haida Gwaii that are closed to various commercial fisheries.The Gowgaia Institute created these base maps and the closure data was provided by DFO-Pacific Region, Fisheries Closure Database.
