CPAWS supports independent review of fisheries on Manitoba lakes


In a recent assessment, CPAWS’ organizational partner SeaChoice is highlighting broad issues with the commercial fishery in Manitoba. Lakes Winnipeg, Manitoba and Winnipegosis make up the lions share of the second largest freshwater fishery in North America. With significant amounts of fish for sale lacking sustainability rankings, the industry watchdog was driven to investigate the current status and long term sustainability of the catch in this province.
