The Dzawada’enuxw First Nation is taking legal action to stop the operation of open-pen fish farms on its traditional territory.

The First Nation, based in the South Coast community of Kingcome Inlet, B.C., filed a claim of Aboriginal title in B.C. Supreme Court on Monday for the land and waters in and around the Broughton Archipelago northeast of Vancouver Island.

The title claim affects 10 fish farms — which have licences granted by the province — as well as a few forest tenures.
