Abstract

This paper explores the experiences of Indigenous people in the jurisdictions of New Zealand and Canada where Indigenous commercial fishing has been significantly progressed to see what lessons Torres Strait Islanders can learn going into the future. It is evident that the situation in the Torres Strait, where tensions exist between Indigenous and non-indigenous fishers, is complex, challenging and dynamic. Securing rights, focusing on sustainable livelihoods and genuinely recognising equality will strengthen relationships between Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples in the Torres Strait.
