    IJC on New Great Lakes Fish Health Advisory Committee

    IJC on New Great Lakes Fish Health Advisory Committee

    n 2017 Blue Fish Canada organized a half-day focus on fish health and fish consumption as part of the St. Lawrence River Institute for Environmental Studies Annual research and policy symposium. In attendance was Dr. Laurie Chan, Canadian co-chair of the IJC Health Professionals Advisory Board, and a University of Ottawa Professor and Canada Research Chair in Toxicology and Environmental Health. Good news, the International Joint Commission just announced the formation of a Fish Consumption Advisory Project with the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, and Dr. Chan is Co-Chairing the initiative! The initiative represents a first step to better understand the role of fish consumption advisories and what catching and consuming fish in the Great Lakes Basin and St. Lawrence River means to the socio-economic sustainability of shoreline communities. Link below to hear Dr. Chan discuss the new IJC initiative with Lawrence Gunther on this episode of Blue fish Radio.

    Rescuing Alberta's Native Trout

    Rescuing Alberta's Native Trout

    Westslope Cut Throat Trout, bull trout and Athabasca rainbow trout are native trout species found in Alberta that now need our help. Protecting these native species and the diversity they represent is crucial if we are to avoid a country populated solely with the same non-native trout species introduced through fish stocking programs during the 1900’s. The Alberta Conservation Association get’s this and so does the Alberta Government, numerous conservation groups and the anglers themselves. Link below to hear Lawrence Gunther in conversation with senior ACA biologist Mike Rodtka as they discuss the many challenges ahead on Blue Fish Radio.

    The Alberta Native Trout Restoration Program includes The Alberta Conservation Association, Cows and Fish, Trout Unlimited Canada, Foothills Research Institute, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and the Alberta Government. The Program entails: fish habitat improvements, a north Central Native Trout Recovery Program, a roadway Watercourse Crossing Remediation Initiative, a Westslope Cutthroat Trout Recovery Program, and a Whirling Disease detection, education and mitigation strategies.
