Chief Scott McLeod and Nipissing First Nation Fisheries

Chief Scott McLeod

The Government of Ontario recognizes the Nipissing First Nation’s Chi-Naaknigewin (Constitution) and Fisheries Law, a first for Ontario. This recognition supports a new approach to fisheries management and nation-to-nation relationship building. Chief Scott McLeod of Nipissing First Nation is our guest on the Blue Fish Radio Show. Chief McLeod offers a brief historic and legal overview of their fishery, followed by a wide-ranging conversation that explores everything from the spring spear fishery, the catch-and-release recreational fisheries, and the responsibility that comes with modern fishing technologies.
