Portage Claim

The portage claim has to do with the reserve located on the Babine Lake end of the portage between Babine and Stuart Lakes.  This reserve is currently held by Yekooche.  LBN is researching a claim that argues that this reserve actually belongs to LBN and was originally intended for the use of the LBN members rather than Yekooche members.  The research for this claim is ongoing, but in many ways it hinges on who the lands commissioner at the time intended this reserve to be for. 

Once the research on this claim is complete, a legal opinion will have to be completed.  If the legal opinion finds that Canada breached its fiduciary responsibility to LBN, then the claim will be filed for consideration by the federal government.  

2017 Skeena Sockeye Management Plan

In 2017, the total sockeye return to the entire Skeena River is expected to be 500,000. The average return is about 2 million. The predicted 2017 return would be about the same size as the return in 2013 that led to dramatic reductions in food fish harvest for LBN.
