Ahousaht First Nation

The 1,600 member Ahousaht First Nation and the 700 residents of the Village of Ahousaht live in beautiful and tranquil Clayoquot Sound. The Ahousaht were an ardent opponent of salmon aquaculture, but have shifted their position and now work with the industry to exert a positive influence on industry practices. The Ahousaht First Nation shares its unique Northwest Coast aboriginal culture with salmon farmers by transferring their indigenous ecological knowledge of the Hahoulthee (traditional territory). The Ahousaht believe that mutual respect and harmonization with the industry is the best way to ensure that resources and the environment are protected.
