Perceptions OF American Eel Habitat in Gespe’Gewa’Gi [Gespe'gewqag Mi'gmaq Resource Council, GMRC]

Gespe'gewqag Mi'gmaq Resource Council (GMRC)
Year of publication: 

"The Gespe’gewag Mi’gmaq Resource Council (GMRC) in New Brunswick was concerned that First Nations groups were not consulted prior to the listing of the eel and decided to undertake research of eel populations and traditional knowledge with participating communities, Listuguj First Nation, Eel River Bar First Nation, Pabineau First Nation. This study involved Mi’gmaw people, primarily elders, in identifying past locations of key eel fishing grounds and habitat, any major migration barriers, knowledge of population size and reasons for population changes."
