An Enormous Honour
In making the announcement to the membership, President Ian Young, described the award as an enormous honour as it is the top fisheries conservation award in North America. It has been awarded to Muskies Canada to recognize all of our conservation activities; working with our partners, from catch and release, possession and size limits and and Know the Difference signs and cards, to the Lake Simcoe Muskie Restoration Project, Project Noble Beast and the Kawartha Lakes Pike Invasion Project. We are jointly receiving the award with Muskies Inc. to recognize all of the conservation work that we each do, much of it together, to manage the muskie fishery in North America.
