Abstract:

The Bras d'Or Lakes, located in the heart of Cape Breton Island in the Province of Nova Scotia, is a rich marine ecosystem. While considered by many as an inland sea or a series of connected lakes, the Bras d'Or is more accurately described as a complex estuary with salinities approximately one third that of the surrounding ocean. The lakes and surrounding watershed are rich in natural resources, with active mining, forestry and fishing operations. Oyster productivity in the lakes once supported a large industry. Currently however, the waters of the Bras d'Or are facing a number of threats including land and marine based sewage, impacts from of shoreline development, marine invasive species, fishery declines and space use conflicts. This paper describes an approach to the development of an integrated management plan that addresses these land and water conservation issues. This approach involves all levels of government industry, NGOs, academia, and community members. Unique in this approach is the role that the five First Nation Communities have taken in providing leadership to this process. Technical approaches to date have included the development of governance processes to oversee this work, the summary of scientific knowledge to support integrated management, and the development of a framework to complete an overall integrated management plan based on common objectives for this area. This paper describes the process and approach that lays the foundation for this plan.
