Fisheries

The Kitselas First Nation fishes with salmon nets for Food, Social and Ceremonial (FSC) purposes under the authority of a communal licence issued to the band by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Kitselas Fisheries personnel issue designation cards. The designation cards have no expiry and must be carried by the fisher while engaged in fishing operations and produced upon request of DFO personnel or band fisheries staff.

FSC fishing by Kitselas members is permitted in all traditional fishing areas within the Skeena Watershed. The traditional fish harvest areas of the Kitselas First Nation includes the Skeena Watershed downstream of Lorne Creek to the mouth of the Skeena River.
