Background

The Watershed Talk addresses the fisheries related interests and concerns of First Nations within the Fraser Watershed and Vancouver Island/marine approach areas. This collaborative bi-weekly series newsletter (weekly during fishing season) is coordinated from the FRAFS office in Merritt, BC. Its goal is to distribute technical information in a timely and efficient manner.

In 1998, concerns were raised over the content of some newsletters specifically dealing with territorial disputes and claims. A request was made for the review of the editorial process and recommendations were made by the Fraser Watershed Steering Committee for the development of a mechanism to ensure the integrity of the newsletter is maintained.

Please note that the opinions expressed in Watershed Talk content from outside contributors are not necessarily endorsed by FRAFS.
