Asking for lake users input!
Important research is underway on Big Rideau Lake by Dr. Steven Cooke's team at Carleton University. Those of you who attended the BRLA AGM last month will remember the fascinating presentation Dr. Cooke made to us about this work - looking at the black bass (largemouth and smallmouth) populations, and their health and movement throughout the lake as affected by the seasonal changes and fishing tournament activities.
Dr. Cooke's lab is now conducting a social science survey to characterize and understand stakeholder perceptions of the black bass population and black bass management in Big Rideau Lake. They are seeking input from lake users, and we encourage all BRLA members to participate.
Please take the time to fill out this short survey (takes 10 min) and feel free to share with your fellow lake users!
