We envision a future of
abundant salmon returns and prosperous fisheries for the long term benefit of all communities of Nootka Sound and Esperanza Inlet



The NSWS strives to provide an inclusive and respectful community-based forum to effectively address ecological and economic issues surrounding salmon in the Nootka Sound and Esperanza Inlet areas.



By raising funds we want to grow the stewardship capacity of our communities and enable local citizens to make positive change for the well-being of our communities and the environment. 


The NSWS has been working hard with its partners to develop a Watershed Recovery Plan. This plan will consider our communities and stakeholders values, priorities, and capacity in order to create a roadmap for the future.


Coming Soon


We are a group of local community members, First Nations representatives, local elected representatives, biologists, industry representatives, commercial fishermen, sport fishermen, educators and stewards with one common goal: to see a healthy revival of salmon stocks to the Nootka Sound and Esperanza Inlet watersheds.

We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and have over 200 members from all walks of life. The Board meets monthly to discuss conservation, enhancement, restoration, assessment, stewardship and economic development pertaining to Pacific Salmon in the Nootka Sound and Esperanza Inlet areas.
