The BC Young Fishermen's Gathering is the perfect opportunity for new and prospective fishermen to come together to gather knowledge and build support as you start your fishing career. Get updates from fellow fishermen on major West Coast fisheries, learn about the business side of fishing from finance and marketing experts. Get your hands on some gear and learn by doing. Plus conversations on West Coast Marine Protected Areas, lost fishing gear impacts, and empowering Indigenous women in BC’s Fishing Industry.
The gathering isn’t just about business, it's also a celebration of fishing on the West Coast. There will be door prizes for some lucky winners, and seafood feasting for all with catering provided by Good Wife Gourmet. There will be cold drinks flowing, good company, and swapping of sea tales. This year the gathering will all take place on the shores of Discovery Passage in Campbell River, BC in the beautiful Maritime Heritage Centre which houses an eclectic marine exhibit showcasing the history of Vancouver Island.
Join them for all the festivities in Campbell River, BC, March 22-24!
