OFAH Raises Concerns About Baitfish Regulations

Posted on Monday, June 19, 2017 08:41 AM

The Ministry of Natural Resources is proposing some new changes to policies on bait fish.

The new policy would introduce baitfish management zones and new rules on moving baitfish between these zones.

Tom Brooke is the Fisheries Biologist with the Ontario Federation of Hunters and Anglers says one of the proposed ideas is to ban the use of live bait in provincial parks.

The MNR is trying to stop the transfer of invasive species.

A public feedback session was held last week in Kenora but you can give feedback online for the proposed policy until June 27th.
