For those who don’t already know them, Haisla Fisheries would like to formally introduce Stan Hutchings and Karen Hansen. Stan and Karen live aboard the vessel “Hawk Bay” and have been an important part of fisheries management in Haisla territory for more that 30 years.
Both have worked with Haisla fisheries on annual salmon stock assessment projects, aquatic research, training, emergency response, marine use plans, and Haisla community initiatives including the Haisla Youth Cultural Camp and wa’wais cabin projects.
If you see them in our harbour, be sure to say hello. They hold a wealth of experience and stories of the Haisla coast. They also continue to play an instrumental part in the success of many projects in support of the Haisla community and conservation.
Thanks, Stan and Karen, for all you help in 2017 and all the best for the New Year!
