UINR would like your input to help shape a position on the listing of Katew, American eel.

DFO is checking in to see whether previous positions have changed.

The meeting will cover:

  • Eel Knowledge – what we know and don’t know
  • Species at Risk Act (SARA)
  • Fishers’ previous position on listing
  • Approaches to conservation / fisheries management – is listing the only solution?

We will host two virtual meetings. Join the one that best meets your schedule.

The same information will be covered in both meetings.


Wednesday, March 20, 6-9pm


Thursday, March 21, 6-9pm


The Zoom link (for both meetings) is:


We will draft a position based on your input, and make it available for you to review before April 8, 2024.
