SAULNIERVILLE, N.S. — The National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations is calling for an end to what she calls intimidation over the Sipekne’katik First Nation’s lobster fishery.

So far this summer, hundreds of traps have been seized from St. Mary’s Bay and RoseAnne Archibald was on a boat that was detained by DFO officers Thursday afternoon, who then seized the traps of the fisherman she was with.

“Two DFO zodiacs with eight enforcement officers encircled and detained the boat and later traps were pulled, confiscated and loaded onto a Coast Guard boat,” Sipekne’katik First Nation said in a news release. “The community members were fishing food, social and ceremonial (FSC) tags clearly designated with the colour purple. The tags were numbered less than 1000 all of which is in compliance with DFO and the community’s fisheries management plans.”
