A recent article on gypsy moth cold temperature survival rates got one of our local residents to thinking about what the implications are mathematically.
Information about Gypsy Moth (Lymantria dispar dispar), a forest defoliating insect found in Ontario
The Broad-scale Fisheries Monitoring program collects information from representative lakes in fisheries management zones across the province to help biologists manage our fisheries effectively. This bulletin provides a snapshot of recent monitoring activities and netting results. The sampling approach allows us to measure and evaluate the health of Ontario’s lakes and their fish communities, and track changes through time over broad areas of Ontario.
Invasive Species An invasive species is a plant, animal or fish that has been introduced to an area outside of its normal geographic range, and threatens the health of our natural areas by out-competing native species for food and habitat.
To minimize the threat to our waterways, continued diligence is needed to control further infestation of invading species. Boaters, anglers and operators of personal watercraft must take precautions to avoid transporting invading species either to or from Kamaniskeg. Boaters and
Don’t move firewood. Drain your bilges! Invasive and harmful animals and plants can hitchhike on wood, in your bilge water, and on trailers. To protect our precious forests, lakes and rivers, make sure you are not part of the problem.
What is the impact? Compared to other zooplankton species, it can eat up to three times more food, competing directly with native zooplankton and fish, and reducing both the amount and kinds of prey available. Also, although some native fish species feed
The Broad-scale Monitoring Program provides information for managing our fisheries effectively. This bulletin provides a snapshot of the recent monitoring activities and netting results. Netting is conducted using large and small mesh nets to understand the characteristics of fish communities in a lake. Large mesh nets contribute information about fish species and small mesh nets describe the fish community.
