Data collection is second nature to our Resource Management Team, and we use that data to monitor and maximize the sustainability of our harvest. At our landing sites, we keep detailed records of daily landings and scale harvest weights to control the harvest within specified limits – those pre-determined by our Resource Scientists.
Each year, we report to governmental partners on the successes, challenges and opportunities in the areas we harvest, ensuring that our precious marine resources remain available for generations.
The sustainability of our harvesting practices depends on the dedication and expertise of our Resource Management Team. Their hands-on work with our Harvesters along the shorelines and on the wharves gives us insight into the dynamic conditions of our intertidal harvesting zones. Here’s a glimpse of the people who manage this important role:
