Shawn Buckley

Shawn, who’s Dene and Metis, is a third generation commercial fisherman on Great Slave Lake and has been fishing his entire life. He supplements his income from fishing by taking tourists out to see the Aurora Borealis. He fishes in a sustainable way, driving a Bombardier rather than snowmobiles, because he can move his entire catch in one drive. Shawn knows how to repair them himself now. When he’s not fishing or repairing his Bombardiers at his cabin, he spends time with his four children, especially his young son who he hopes to teach the business of sustainable fishing.
