The core funding for TRT Fisheries Department comes from the Aboriginal Fisheries Strategy (AFS). This is Federal funding to support TRT involvement in salmon management on the Taku River. For 2019 we have been successful in expanding the scope of projects funded under the AFS program to include TRT involvement in: Tatsatua Sampling, the Coho test fishery and the Taku smolt project.
The Fisheries Department has also been successful at obtaining funding for several proposal-driven projects. These funds come from the Northern Endowment Fund, through the Pacific Salmon Commission.
The TRT Fisheries Department also receives some funding from the Taku Atlin Conservancy (TAC).
