Fisheries Management Changes

Northern Pike and Walleye Recreational Fisheries Management Frameworks

Recreational Fisheries Management Objectives

Management frameworks for fish species outline the management approaches for achieving a desired population status and type of fishery (example: Sustainable Harvest, Old Growth) while considering other factors such as biological capability and limitations. The Northern Pike and Walleye Recreational Fisheries Management Frameworks outline the range of recreational objectives and associated standard management tools to achieve the desired population and fisheries types.

Following are the Recreational Fisheries Management Objectives (RFMO) for all proposed 2019-2020 regulation changes.

  • For waterbodies identified as having fish conservation concerns (Fish Sustainability Index 2 or less), notification of the required management action is provided.
  • For waterbodies where the status of the fish population allows for options, we are seeking input from the public on the changes.

Waterbodies are listed by Fish Management Zone (FMZ). For a reference map to the waterbodies with a notification of regulation changes and their related FMZs, see:

For a reference map to the waterbodies where we are consulting on proposed changes and their related FMZs, see:
