"On May 19, 1993, the Listuguj Mi’gmaq First Nation Government took over the management of the salmon fishery in the Restigouche River where it flows between the provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec – waters the Listuguj Mi’gmaq people had fished for many generations. They did so not under a contract with provincial or federal authorities – the province of Quebec in fact opposed them. Nor did they do it by asking permission or receiving a request from some other government – they asked no permission and received no such requests.

"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."

"The Mi’gmaq have had a relationship with salmon for thousands of years. The activity of salmon fishing has contributed socially, culturally and economically to our nation. Today, the First Nation communities of Listuguj, Pabineau, and Eel River Bar, which comprise GMRC, assert that they have a right and responsibility to protect, promote, and encourage a sustainable Atlantic salmon fishery, not only for today but for future generations."
