The Fishery

The Okanagan Nation Alliance has a small artisanal fishery with limited quantities of fish.

Until recently, local sockeye salmon stocks neared extinction due to habitat loss, impassable dams, over-harvest, and climate change. Kt cp’elk’ stim’ is a Syilx word meaning “cause to come back.” Today, the years of hard work and dedication are paying off and we now have a sustainable population and sockeye runs.

Responsible Trade

The ONA practices responsible trade with respectful and relevant fishing practices. The ONA is a member of Slow Food International and Slow Fish Canada and is devoted to good, clean, fair food. This local, wild sockeye is the only salmon on Slow Food Canada’s protected Ark of Taste.

The proceeds from the sales are reinvested in the conservation of native fish and aquatic resources in the Columbia Basin. This “salmon conservation come-back story” is now being showcased on a local, regional, and International level
