2005 Selected Results for the Great Lakes Fishery


The 2005 Survey of Recreational Fishing in Canada collected information about recreational fishing activities to assess the economic and social importance of recreational fisheries to Canada's provinces and territories. Using the Ontario subset of this national data, information specific to the Great Lakes has been developed in order to determine the importance of this particular recreational fishery. It is at this time the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of statistics regarding the harvest, retention, and economics of recreational angling on the Great Lakes.
