This is an exciting opportunity to contribute the Fisheries Management Zone 15 planning efforts. I would encourage everyone, especially those who are passionate about fishing or fisheries conservation in the AOO Settlement Area, to complete the questionnaire. The questionnaire can be completed virtually through the following link. This link can be accessed by a computer or cellphone.
Please see the link below to the AOO Fisheries Management Zone 15 Planning Questionnaire.
For your reference I have attached the MNRF background presentation that was shared with AOO during our April Harvest Working Group meeting. This backgrounder on Fisheries Management Zone 15 may assist you when developing answers to questions in the questionnaire.

Please see the Ontario website for information related to FMZ 15 and the current fishing regulations associated with it: Fisheries Management Zone 15 (FMZ 15) | Ontario.ca.
I will be accepting responses between now and July 30th, 2021. All responses will be shared with MNRF’s FMZ 15 Core Planning Team and will further assist me in my review of the draft FMZ 15 plan expected to be shared for review this summer.
