Domestic fishing is fishing for food by those Aboriginals with Constitutionally protected rights and other individuals who legitimately require access to the fisheries resource to meet basic subsistence requirements. Domestic fishing has long been an important activity to First Nations peoples. Fish have, and continue to be a valuable source of food. Fishing also plays an important role in bringing people together socially including the celebration of religious and cultural traditions.
