Weh-Sees Indohoun Special Fishing and Hunting Zone

The Weh-Sees Indohoun (WSI) special zone was established in 2003 in order to implement specific management measures for sport fishing and hunting activities during the construction phase of the Eastmain-1 and Eastmain‑1‑A–Sarcelle–Rupert hydroelectric projects.

Previously, the WSI zone was managed by the Weh-Sees Indohoun Corporation and funded by Hydro-Québec. Since 2015, the zone is now managed by the Weh-Sees Indohoun Sub-committee created under the auspice of the Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Coordinating Committee (HFTCC).

The WSI Sub-committee is composed of representatives from the Cree Nation Government (CNG), the Cree communities on which this zone extends (Nemaska, Waskaganish, Wemindji, Eastmain, Mistissini), the Cree Trappers Association (CTA), the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs (MFFP) [Québec Department of Forestry, Wildlife and Parks] and the HFTCC.

The WSI Sub-committee will continue to monitor the WSI special zone and its wildlife resources with the objectives of:

  • Monitoring and managing access to wildlife resources in the WSI special zone;
  • Promoting the conservation of wildlife and ecosystems;
  • Preserving the wildlife heritage for the benefit of future generations.

Specific management measures implemented in the WSI zone, such as the access right and the catch registry system, enables the collection of important information that is used to monitor the health of wildlife population in a territory with increased road access. With this information the measures are periodically reviewed in order to ensure their effectiveness.

 

The WSI Committee relies on the collaboration of all users coming in the region to provide the necessary information for a better conservation of the resource.
