This project will ‘bring to market’ a new and innovative fishery by-product business in Grand Rapids/Misipawistik Cree Nation. This business is significant for Grand Rapids/Misipawistik Cree Nation as it will enhance the viability of fisheries in this community, enhance food security for those enjoying healthy and affordable fish products and stimulate economic development in northern Manitoba. This project aims to develop this fishery by-product business through 3 main activities: a) interviewing restaurant owners and grocery store owners in Winnipeg to assess the willingness of restaurant owners to serve by-catch fish products and the willingness of grocers to stock by-catch fish products; and b) working with FarmaFeed Consulting to determine a business plan for Grand Rapids/Misipawistik Cree Nations fishers given market conditions and costs incurred.
