Blue Fish Radio: The Science Behind the Bay of Quinte’s Giant Walleye

Science from the Glenora Fisheries Station, Part 1

Bay of Quinte walleye fishing gets better and better. Hear why, and how to take advantage

Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.

In the first of three episodes recorded live at Ontario’s Glenora Fisheries Station (above), Lawrence talks to Colin Lake, lead management biologist in the Lake Ontario Management Unit at the Ministry of Natural Resources. First, Lake explains why Pacific salmon were initially introduced into Lake Ontario. And then Lake discusses why the Bay of Quinte remains one of North America’s the greatest trophy walleye fisheries in North America, in spite of rising water temperatures.
