One of Canada’s great waterways—and a trophy fishery—is under threat from outdated flow management
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 this episode of Blue Fish Radio, Lawrence Gunther talks to Lee Willbanks (above), who is the official riverkeeper for the Upper St. Lawrence. Willbanks is working hard to have the River removed from the endangered list, and the crucial step is implementation of Plan 2014, developed by the International Joint Commission. Hear how the relatively arcane issue of poor water-flow management has harmed the aquatic habitat, and what it will take to restore the river.
