First Nations interested in developing geoduck aquaculture continue to contact the AAA office seeking updates on the Integrated Geoduck Management Framework.  Discussions with several government agency representatives continues on a regular basis to ensure all First Nations queries are answered.

The AAA has communicated the need for a geoduck management framework that addresses the rights of First Nations and provides an opportunity for First Nations to be take part in the industry.
