    Manitoba taking steps to protect Lake Winnipeg Fishery

    Looks like Manitoba is finally moving in the right direction to protect Lake Winnipeg...Commercial fisherman may opt for a buyback on their quota's.

    "Effective immediately, until March 21, the province is offering a voluntary commercial fisheries quota buy-back option. Commercial fishers can make Notifications of Interest to sell their Individual Quota Entitlements (annual allowable catch) to the province. The province will then retire the purchased entitlements in order to reduce the amount of commercial catch taken from the lake every year."

    On a personal and selfish note I really wish everyone would stop buying walleye in supermarkets or ordering it at restaurants. Almost all those fish are from Lake Winnipeg or the Canadian side of Lake Erie- both places I love to go fishing! How about that? We all just go fishing!

    "The Manitoba government will offer the option of voluntary Individual Quota Entitlement buy-back, and introduce new commercial and recreational fishing regulations intended to help assure sustainable fish populations in Lake Winnipeg, Sustainable Development Minister Rochelle Squires announced today.
    “We are seeing early warning signs the sustainability of fisheries resources in Lake Winnipeg is at risk,” Squires said. “By acting today, we will ensure the ability of Manitoba’s great lake to generate food, provide enjoyment and support economic growth in future.”

    I tell all my none fishing friends this. I tell them almost all the walleye comes from lake Winnipeg and the lake is unbelievably polluted and the fish are neon green. I then show them pics of my fish and tell them although i fish there there is no way i'm eating fish from that lake. Turns them off pretty quick

    Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.

    Almost too little too late. When they allowed the net sizes to increase it caught many of the trophy fish that brings the fishermen to Lake Winnipeg. They should just pay the fishermen to not fish at all because the fish are more valuable for tourism in the region. They really screwed the pooch.
