There are many legal regulations that can affect commercial fishing rights.

The experienced lawyers at MacKenzie Fujisawa represent both individual fishermen and commercial fishing businesses in all types of legal disputes. Common legal disputes in the fishing industry include:


  • Government inquiries
  • Allegations of regulatory offenses
  • Aboriginal fishing rights
  • Property damage and cargo claims
  • Arbitration and litigation of civil claims
  • Insurance coverage issues


Our lawyers are prepared to arbitrate these claims out of court or litigate disputes in court when necessary. We have handled fishing cases at trial and on appeal in the courts of British Columbia as well as the Federal Court and the Supreme Court of Canada.


Mackenzie Fujisawa also represents shipping companies and aquaculture ventures in the fishing industry. Our legal services help business owners reduce liability in contracts, transactions, regulatory compliance, and daily business operations. Our lawyers advise on all aspects of fishing operations to avoid liability and unnecessary expenses as much as possible.
