Story of Origin

This hake is fished by people in coastal communities of northwestern North America that have long depended on the sea as a source of food and livelihoods. As small scale operations were replaced by industrial fishing vessels, the people in small towns, like Port Hardy, Canada, learned to change their ways. Now, the ships are larger and the nets more efficient, but the hake are managed for everyone's benefit.

Good to know

The North Pacific Hake fishery is a cooperation success story between Canada and the USA. Since the fish don't follow international borders, scientists from both countries join forces to study how healthy the stocks are and how many fish can be caught. Fishers, local tribes, and industry leaders are also invited to discuss their needs. This means that one of the most economically important fisheries in North America is also one of the most well-managed.
