Nothing is 100% certain, but natural resources is mostly likely one area which will have joined FN/BC jurisdiction.
The last thing FN worry is sport fishing for Steelhead which does not affect salmon.
Gill-netting near mouth of Skeena is a dying industry. Lots of very old fisherman who did not have to many opportunities to fish for Sockeye in the last 5 years. Even in 2018, despite some openings only 20-30 boats per day showed up vs. 150-180 in 2014 for example.
Considering that fee for sport fishing licenses or classify water were flat for the 10 last years or so, I would not be surprised to see next year a solid hike, like 50%. The extra revenue will be shared with FN.
Also expect lots of ranting from Bob Hooton ( shy is falling) and more anti-FN articles. I am surprised he does not share Twitter account with the other guy ........
