Coastal Restoration Society (CRS) is committed to supporting First Nations, Provincial and Federal Government in the fight against climate change. CRS projects develop and implement solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in First Nations fisheries, and which mitigate the effects of pollution, aquatic invasive species and habitat degradation in traditional First Nations territorial lands and waters.  

Our 'First Nations First' policy ensures that meaningful employment, contract, skill development and training opportunities are provided to local Indigenous peoples first.  


CRS services include project development, implementation and training in the following specialized categories:  

  • mitigating the effects of climate change on resource productivity  

  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions in First Nations fisheries

  • emerging First Nation fisheries opportunities in a changing climate

  • anthropogenic marine debris solutions

  • marine habitat rehabilitation

  • environmental remediation

  • aquatic invasive specie monitoring and control

  • large pelagics assessment and monitoring

  • petroleum product pollution mitigation

  • petroleum spill response

  • derelict vessel removal

  • aquaculture site remediation

  • retrieval of abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded fishing gear (ALDFG or ghost fishing gear) 

Our full compliment of services ensures that Indigenous cultures, Governments, industry and coastal communities have the support they require to maintain balanced relationships between the ecology and sustainable economic growth.
