Aboriginal Aquatic Resource and Oceans Management
About the NWTMN AAROM
The Northwest Territory Métis Nation Aboriginal Aquatic Resource and Oceans Management (AAROM) program has been in operation since 2010.
The AAROM Program is administered by the AAROM coordinator who facilitates the participation of each of the three NWTMN communities in aquatic resource management research, decision making and planning, in partnership with other stakeholders.
The ultimate goal of the NWTMN AAROM Program is to have an integrated Watershed Strategic Plan that reflects the traditional and cultural significance of our aquatic resources.

What is AAROM?
The Aboriginal Aquatic Resource and Oceans Management (AAROM) program is a Fisheries and Oceans program that supports Indigenous aggregate organizations build and maintain scientific and technical capacity in fisheries, aquatic resources, and oceans management.
The term “AAROM department” was developed to describe Indigenous aggregate organizations that are participants in the AAROM program. The term is used to promote and market the skills and expertise of the larger network of AAROM departments to external partners. Please note that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to AAROM departments and each has their own unique brand as many pre-existed the AAROM program. For example, some AAROM departments are part of a Tribal Council or Chiefs organization, whereas others are stand-alone organizations.
