Dennis and Shannon are working with several First Nations in the Yukon Territory to create community-based salmon plans that are based on the culture, heritage, language, and beliefs of each Nation. They help to identify the values and priorities of each Nation and ensure that these values are reflected in the strategic plan for salmon management.
Along with our fave fellow traveller and partner, Keep Fish Wet, Dennis and Shannon are working to create a tool for online education for catch and release fishing with a focus on how to apply best practices in different scenarios.
Dennis has launched an amazing initiative called 'Respect for Fish' that works on many fronts to discuss issues related to catch and release, fish handling, and ideological differences surrounding fishing activities. Phase 1 of this project has been completed, and Phase 2 will begin in 2020.
