Kirsty Walde

    I have worked for DFO as a Fishery Officer in the Pacific Region for 17 years, including General Duty work on the Fraser River in the BC Interior, Bella Bella and Port Hardy. I started with the BC Aquaculture Regulatory Program in 2011 and have been involved as a member of the Conservation & Protection Enforcement Unit since that time. The majority of my recent work as the Senior Compliance Officer has been spent investigating and exploring the traceability issues surrounding the bivalve fisheries in B.C. and I am committed on ensuring the protection of human health, wild stocks and promoting a safe and sustainable shellfish industry.
