Fairmont Waterfront & Haida Wild:
A PARTNERSHIP OF SHARED VALUES.
ARC Chef Alessandro Vianello recently visited Haida Gwaii to experience where our Ocean Wise seafood is sourced first hand.
Haida Wild is excited to partner with ARC and Fairmont Waterfront as we work together to support and promote sustainable fishing. Through our partnership and our commitment to sustainability, we aim to improve the communities in which we live and operate. The fisheries around Haida Gwaii not only provide an important link to the cultural heritage of islands, but also a sustainable future for our islands communities.
We want to help guide others back to the ways of nature: living more connected lives, eating cleanly and sustainably, and knowing the origin of one’s food. This is why we produce seafood that incorporates Yahguudang, the Haida concept of respect for the land, sea, air and all living things.
xaaguu HAIDA GWAII HALIBUT
Halibut is one of many ocean resources that have sustained the Haida people over thousands of years. Dried halibut, known as ts’iljii, was an important part of the diet as well as an integral part of the trade economy. From food fishing in dugout cedar canoes to commercial fishing in seiners, Haida fishermen have reaped the benefits of the Pacific Ocean with great skill and respect.
A MARINE FUTURE
The Haida’s cultural attachment to the ocean flourishes while supporting economic opportunities that are a good match to their growing, youthful population. Island residents maintain a high quality of life resulting from access to healthy food, fresh air, and the expansive inlets and shores. Community cohesion is strong and there is pride in living on Haida Gwaii, particularly in the innovative and progressive management of waters around Haida Gwaii.
