Friends of the Salmon River invites the public to attend a presentation of Our Fish and Fisheries and their Annual General Meeting, Nov. 22 at Roblin Wesleyan Church.
Colin Lake, lead biologist at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF), will present a slide show on the management of the current commercial and recreational fisheries in Lake Ontario, the Bay of Quinte and the lakes in the Salmon River watershed.
Lake has been with MNRF’s Lake Ontario Management Unit for 18 years in various positions; his current role is the lead planning biologist. Growing up locally in Sharbot Lake, he developed a strong interest in all things outdoors and a passion for understanding and managing Ontario’s local fisheries. Lake will share some insightful information on the Lake Ontario Management Unit, based out of Glenora in Prince Edward County.
During his in-person presentation, participants will have the opportunity to learn a great deal about the biology of the many fish species in this area. He will speak about the management and stocking practices of the fish in local waterways. He will also highlight the impact of invasive species on native aquatics. Lake will also share some exciting stories from his work in the field.
Come and learn more about the Friends of Salmon River: our activities and how we enjoy and help preserve the watershed. This is a free event and refreshments will be served.
Roblin Wesleyan Church is located at 3100 County Rd 41, Roblin. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for meet and greet, memberships and donations. The presentation begins at 7 p.m. For more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
