Chippewa Ottawa Resource Authority gathers all 1836 Treaty fishing tribes under its mantle: Bay Mills Indian Community, Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, Little River Band of Ottawa Indians, Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. The CORA governing body is composed of each tribe's chairperson and each tribes' natural resource entity chairperson. Under the CORA charter two committees were established: Great Lakes Resource Committee to serve as inter-tribal management body for the 1836 Treaty fishery and the Inland Lands and Waters Resources Committee to oversee inland resource matters. The 1836 Treaty fishery continues to be one of the most regulated fisheries on the Great Lakes, subject to regulations under CORA, the tribes, FDA HACCP seafood safety and US Coast Guard maritime safety
