As part of the Together with Giigoonyag initiative we will be tagging 50 whitefish for the purpose of telemetry at Government Dock and in Nottawasaga Bay beginning this month. Tagged fish will have an easily noticeable external tag and internal transmitter (see image above). If found, a $100 reward will be provided for these fish, their harvest location, and tags. DO NOT sell, trade, or consume the tagged fish. These fish will contain an anesthetic, MS-222, that will remain in their tissue up to a month. It is not safe to consume these fish.
For more information, please contact: Ryan Lauzon at 519-375-1012 or Alexander Duncan at 226-668-5221.
