First Nations doing business as usual

Re: Katzie follows rules, fish only for food (The News, May 27).

I agree with Chief Jay Bailey, there is no reason to sell salmon earmarked for food, social and ceremonial fishery.

The First Nations on the lower Fraser  River sign Economic Opportunity Agreements with the DFO which accommodate the sale of fish caught in our fishery, provided there is also enough salmon for the regular commercial fleet. And, actually, this arrangement has been the way we have been doing business for nearly two decades now.
