What’s It All About?
Enforcement workers make sure people not only obey the laws protecting fish and wildlife, but understand them as well. Often they spend a lot of time in boats or on land investigating complaints and policing natural areas. They also prepare reports, give evidence in court, hand out licences, and may give talks at schools and community meetings.
Managers of ocean resources work with communities and tribal fisheries departments and other groups to set harvesting limits and create policies governing seafood.
Some work on boats gathering data about catches. Others work on docks or oversee fisheries projects happening in their nation’s territory.
Indigenous guardians play an important role in improving fisheries management in First Nations communities.
Guardians are involved in compliance, monitoring and stewardship activities to ensure the conservation and protection of fisheries.
