Investigating social-ecological enabling conditions for the revitalization of Indigenous clam management systems in an urban context

The general objective of the proposed activity is to increase the future productivity of Burrard Inlet and the contribution of seafood to the diet of Tsleil-Waututh Nation (TWN) members in support of the TWN Cumulative Effects Monitoring Initiative. Specifically, we propose to identify the primary environmental drivers of clam productivity and species composition in Burrard Inlet (ecological analysis); facilitate a platform for community knowledge exchange and collective visioning (transformation lab/knowledge exchange); as well as identify long-term desired outcomes and associated indicators for TWN clam tending practices in Burrard Inlet (semi-structured interviews).
