The approach taken by the Nicola Watershed Stewardship and Fisheries Authority towards fisheries and aquaculture management, puts in use many of the principles that make up the philosophy of Traditional Ecological Knowledge. Maintaining the fishery's physical environment is done through initiatives such as slope stabilization. This involves decreasing siltation resulting from past logging-related degradation and attempting to increase the level of salmon stock.

Documenting the rich indigenous knowledge of the communities serves to both enhance the state of the fisheries themselves, as well as provide possible solutions to future fisheries problems. The Nicola Watershed Stewardship and Fisheries Authority offers its clients training in fisheries management that is unique, innovative and adaptable to any situation.
