Clearly demonstrating that tribal nations not only have the ability to make large scale achievements in resource conservation, but that they can do so with unprecedented success, the Red Lake Walleye Fishery Recovery Project has brought the walleye fish population back from virtual extinction to an optimal level in less than a decade. Operating under a consensus arrangement with local and commercial fisherman, as well as state and federal officials, the Recovery Project now determines when, how, and who can fish the historic waters from which the Band claims their name.
