Fisheries and

Marine Planning

Utilization, conservation, and protection of fish stocks and aquatic ecosystems are often the subject of intense conflict between the competing interests of commercial, artisanal and recreational users, conservation groups and local and national governments. Pacific Resolutions has provided facilitation and mediation services to support the

management and resolution of these locally and internationally.

Example: Coastal First Nations Dialogue with Environmental Groups (2008)
Retained by a coalition of 13 First Nations on the North and Central Coast of British Columbia, 5 environmental
groups, and the George and Betty Moore Foundation to facilitate discussions aimed at proactively preventing conflicts that could arise between First Nations and Environmental non-governmental-organizations in the context of their marine planning efforts.
