Dates of existence


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.
