Who gets to fish for Chinook?

There’s no unambiguous winner in the fight between First Nations and recreational anglers over British Columbia’s last wild stocks of Chinook salmon.  It’s tough saying native traditions should take a back burner to recreational fun, it’s tough arguing recreational fishing should be curtailed because native groups want sole use of a fishery.

I don’t know who’s right.  I know these issues will only become more common in a changing world.
