Course description

Marine Conservation, Fisheries Management, and Indigenous Rights

Presenter: Natalie Ban, PhD, School of Environmental Studies

Friday, September 22: 12:30 to 1:45 pm

Many marine species have been declining due to ineffective fisheries management and other ocean changes. When species decline, those who suffer the most are local residents who do not have the capacity to travel further to catch the fish they need. Indigenous peoples are particularly affected, as fishing and consumption of seafood is a core part of Indigenous cultures. Along the west coast of British Columbia, Indigenous peoples want to change these trends and are asserting their rights over fisheries management and marine conservation. They are using and integrating multiple information types into fisheries management and marine conservation, including traditional ecological knowledge, local knowledge, and ecological scientific methods. This presentation will tell the emerging story of the revitalization of Indigenous management over the oceans, focusing on Dr. Natalie Ban’s research partnering with First Nations.

Trained in geography, resource management and environmental studies, Natalie Ban draws upon many disciplines from natural and social sciences in her work. Her research interests span ethnoecology, conservation biology, marine spatial planning, conservation planning and implementation, and evaluation and mapping of cumulative impacts, all mainly in marine and coastal systems.
