A joint proposal submitted by the Tlowitsis First Nation and Grieg for a new salmon farm in British Columbia marks the first time that a salmon farm's water lot lease and license will belong to the Tlowitsis.

"Grieg will be allowed to grow Atlantic salmon and pay us a stipend for being in the water lot lease," Thomas Smith, councilor for the Tlowitsis Nation on East Vancouver Island in British Columbia, told IntraFish. "It's all within our traditional territory."
