Mark Nelson

Mark joined Lummi Natural Resources Harvest Management team in 2021. He brings over 20 years of fisheries science and management experience. Mark has worked all throughout the U.S., from Alaska to the Pacific Islands and has experience setting national fisheries management policy and guidance for the federal government. Mark’s primary duties at LNR are to ensure the sustainable harvest of Lummi’s finfish resources, including salmon and halibut. He works to protect Lummi’s treaty rights to harvest salmon by participating in the North of Falcon process where salmon harvest levels are set. During the salmon season, Mark can be found sampling catch in ceremonial and subsistence fisheries as well as commercial fisheries. Mark also helps sustainably manage other finfish fisheries such as halibut. He is also looking for ways to maximize opportunity and value of the abundant fisheries resources available to Lummi fishermen.
