| Concurrent assessment of Main Basin
tributaries did not indicate any decline in rainbow trout abundance.
|•There has however been some indications of
increased numbers of stocked rainbow trout in the Main Basin
|• As more stocked fish are marked (Michigan) the
percentage of clipped fish could be increasing.
|• Although any reduction in abundance of wild
fish could be masked by stocking levels, the harvest levels of fish in the
Ontario waters of the Main Basin are lower than Georgian Bay.
