The First Nations people of the west coast of British Columbia have been fishing pacific herring for centuries. Is this fishery dying out like other forms of fishery?

We visit the community of Bella Bella where in 1996 the first nations right to harvest Herring roe was recognized by the Supreme court of Canada in a historic ruling under the label of Gladstone VS the Crown. William Gladstone had been caught with 190 pails of herring roe on kelp. He was arrested but subsequently won the argument that it was his aboriginal right to harvest and market this precious, rare and delicate resource. We'll join several families to see how herring roe is harvested.
