We discussed everything from the thriving local ecosystem above and below water.

The complexities and nuances of  fish stock management. Indigenous wisdom and the application of first nations knowledge. Plus a pretty rattling encounter with a pod of Orcas that would send most of us to the shore. 

“It has many ramifications in my life… freediving is very addictive, it’s literally a drug!"

Ali Carrier

“Orca…ORCAS! I needed to turn and face it. I saw this black fin a good 4ft out of the water coming in my direction. I remember putting my head in the water and seeing them coming towards me. Everything stopped as they passed in front of us.”
