The Fisheries Program mission is to restore, protect, expand and reestablish fish populations to sustainable levels to provide harvest opportunities within the historical and cultural territories of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe. The Program’s goals and objectives are accomplished through the implementation of fisheries management plans, and by working in a variety of cooperative, governmental and non-governmental arenas to address aquatic resource issues and needs. The Coeur d’Alene Tribal Council directs the Fisheries Program, as part of the Natural Resources Department, to develop cooperative agreements, design habitat improvement projects, conduct scientific research and monitoring, and pursue various funding opportunities to accomplish the maintenance and improvement in the Reservation fishing program and to develop cooperative activities that may be required off Reservation.
