Biographical history

The Fisheries Council of British Columbia was created in 1984 when the Fisheries Association of British Columbia severed its ties with the Fisheries Council of Canada. The Fisheries Council of British Columbia has operated independently ever since. The Fisheries Association of British Columbia had been established in 1951 as the western division of the Fisheries Council of Canada. The Fisheries Association of British Columbia succeeded a number of cannery and fish processor associations that had operated in British Columbia since the 1890s. The mandate of the Fisheries Council of British Columbia is to represent the common interests of its member companies to all levels of government. These interests include: the promotion of the fish products of its members in domestic and foreign markets; the protection of salmon habitat; health and safety regulations within the fishing industry; First Nations Treaty negotiations within British Columbia where fishing interests are under discussion; international treaties related to the allocation of salmon and other west coast fish stocks; and the management and allocation of salmon and other west coast fish stocks to British Columbia fishermen.

Biographical history

The Fisheries Association of British Columbia was established in 1951 as the western division of the Fisheries Council of Canada. The activities of the Association spanned the full range of interests of the B.C. fishing industry, including resource protection and development, labour contract negotiations, product development, and safety programs. In addition, the Association also functioned as a liaison between the various departments of government and the British Columbia fishing industry. The Association severed its ties with the Fisheries Council of Canada in 1984 to become the Fisheries Council of B.C.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds is comprised of photographs documenting the activities and concerns of the west coast fishing industry: fishing boats, fishing and fish processing, fish plants and canneries, special events related to the promotion of fish products, Adams River sockeye runs, traditional First Nations fisheries, sports fishing, research on salmon, salmon habitat destruction, and hatchery and fishways construction and operations. The pictures were taken all along the British Columbia coast from the San Juan fishing grounds on southwestern Vancouver Island to Prince Rupert. Included are photographs taken at salmon producing lakes and rivers in the interior of British Columbia. Some of the photographs originated at food shows in Europe and the Tokyo wholesale fish market. The fonds includes 12 films with fishing related topics plus a small amount of textual material related to the photographs.
