Draft marine plan maps out uses of North Island waters

Already three years in the making, a new draft marine plan for the North Island is being released.

About 18 area First Nations worked alongside the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to create the plan that will have suggested uses for mapped out areas in the ocean north of Campbell River.

Dallas Smith, President of the Nanwakolas Council, represented eight different First Nations who participated in creating the marine plan.

Short says once they have taken all the feedback into account the marine plan will be sent to the Province, it is expected to be finished by June.
