Huu-ay-aht First Nations regrets to inform citizens living in Nanaimo, Port Alberni and Parksville that we are unable to distribute any more halibut this season.
Regrettably, a number of problems occurred during the fishing season leading to the Nation being unable to catch its quota for the year. This left us without enough halibut to do the final distribution. We appreciate your patience and understanding concerning this matter, and we apologize for the inconvenience it has created.
Luckily, the Nation does have some frozen rockfish, cod and halibut that was harvested and processed in the fall, and we will be sharing this with the elders in these communities. Fortunately we have enough left to give each elder five pounds of frozen white fish.
Citizens in these communities will be receiving their coho/chinook next week on March 8 and 10 at the same time and location as their food box deliveries.
If you have any questions, please contact the Huu-ay-aht goverment office at 1-888-644-4555 or 250-723-0100.
