Fisheries

The main focus for the Director of Fisheries is to advance the interests of fishing on Kawagama and Bear Lakes through research, education programs and by being a liaison between the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry ('MNRF') and the KLCA Board on behalf of the cottagers of Kawagama and Bear Lakes.  

 

Each year, the KLCA's annual Fisheries Report highlights some of our past year’s accomplishments, and future programs pertaining to:

 

  • protecting fish and aquatic legislative priorities of the MNRF;
  • assisting in the coordination of science-based conservation surveys and studies;
  • connecting more of the KLCA membership to fish and wildlife conservation; and
  • fostering conservation leadership amongst our membership.
