|In 2000, an
aerial boat count project was conducted to evaluate all of the fishing effort
in Georgian Bay. Based upon that
study, about 45% of the fishing effort takes place in the SW region of
Georgian Bay that has been traditionally surveyed. This data along with some sporadic information from other areas
surveyed allow us to make an estimate for the complete Basin. However it
should be noted that much of the basin remains unsurveyed with small pockets
of potentially high recreation effort and harvest occurring.
