Lake Surveys Manage Fisheries in Northwest Region

Minimize
THUNDER BAY, ON  -----   June 18, 2014  ---Fisheries crews from the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) will be out on Ontario’s lakes MNR Lake Surveythis summer monitoring fish populations, taking water samples, and checking for invasive species.

If you're on a lake that is being monitored and see MNR buoys, please don’t lift the nets or buoys, and avoid recreational activities between and around the buoys. All nets will be clearly marked.

Information gathered through these surveys will be used to help make decisions about managing fisheries, including setting seasons and size limits for anglers.

Approximately 143 lakes will be targeted this summer across Ontario.

In the northwest, crews will conduct netting surveys and water samples in three lakes in Fisheries Management Zone 6 (near Thunder Bay) and 51 lakes in Fisheries Management Zone 4 (near Dryden, Sioux Lookout, Kenora and Red Lake).

About 1.3 million anglers fish in Ontario each year, spending more than $2.5 billion annually on fisheries-related products and services.
