New guidelines promote sustainable lobster fishery for Mi’kmaq

Thu. Oct 18 – 6:07 AM

ESKASONI — A First Nations research organization released new guidelines this fall to promote sustainable lobster fishing in the Mi’kmaq community.

The Unama’ki Institute of Natural Resources published the new plan, which kicked in with the Sept. 15 fishing season. It encourages anglers to go back to the traditional First Nations hunting principles, such as netukulimk, in their food, social and ceremonial fishery practices.
