High Bar First Nations Notice - Not Selling Fishing Permits

May 4, 2017

To whom it may concern:

We are writing to let you know that due to super low salmon stocks, High Bar First Nation will not be issuing fishing permits this year to anyone who it not a High Bar Member.   We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we need to help conserve our salmon stocks and also give our members a chance to catch their FSC fish.  Our fishing territory is very small and due to the limited time openings to fish, we need to reserve these areas for High Bar members only.  We are sending this letter to all people who have purchased fishing permits in our area.  We are also forwarding it to as many bands as possible.  We need to get the word out so that people who normally fish in the High Bar Territory can make other arrangements to get their FSC fish.  Again sorry for the inconvenience, we will readdress this issue next year depending on the salmon stocks.

All my relations,

Tanya Plante

Service Coordinator
