The International Muskie Research Symposium

Carleton University, Ottawa - August 14th, 15th, 2014.
Managing the Muskellunge fishery is a growing challenge for governments, angling groups and conservation organizations.
 - Innovative science and research will lead to better understanding to improve sustainability.

 - Progressive management practices are improving fish handling, protecting and enhancing breeding habitat, and monitoring watershed health.

 - New partnerships bring together public, private and not-for-profit sectors working together toward a sustainable Muskellunge fishery for future generations.

 *On-campus Accommodations for those wishing to stay on campus, please call 613-520-5609. Please be advised that there is no official block of rooms available for the workshop, rather, please book under your own name.
