Muskie Fishing News 2017

An Enormous HonourAugust 3 2012



Muskies Canada and its U.S. sister organization, Muskies Inc., have just been announced as the joint winners of the 2012 Conservation Achievement Award by the American Fisheries Society`s Fisheries Management Section.

In making the announcement to the membership, President Ian Young, described the award as an enormous honour as it is the top fisheries conservation award in North America. It has been awarded to Muskies Canada to recognize all of our conservation activities; working with our partners, from catch and release, possession and size limits and and Know the Difference signs and cards, to the Lake Simcoe Muskie Restoration Project, Project Noble Beast and the Kawartha Lakes Pike Invasion Project. We are jointly receiving the award with Muskies Inc. to recognize all of the conservation work that we each do, much of it together, to manage the muskie fishery in North America.
The American Fisheries Society, founded in 1870, is the largest and most prestigious professional society of fisheries scientists in the world. It is composed of over 9,000 scientists from around the world.
Muskies Canada is indebted to Sean Landsman and Dr Steven Cooke for their nomination of Muskies Canada and Muskies Inc. for this honour. Jay Zahn, President of Muskies Inc., and Ian Young will accept the awards on behalf of Muskies Inc.and Muskies Canada at the American Fisheries Society`s Annual General Meeting in Minneapolis on August 19th, 2012.
Ian noted that We (MCI) should all be very proud of what a small non-profit fishing club comprised 100% of volunteers, has accomplished!
